Cash boost for Southport's coastline heroes

FOR more than 15 years, Ormskirk and Southport Oddfellows have been supporting Southport's coastline heroes; Southport Offshore Rescue Trust; with charitable donations. This year is no exception for the local friendly society, as a group of its members visited the Trust's Lifeboat Station, on 2 August 2018, to present them with their most recent financial contribution of just over ₤775.

Southport Offshore Rescue Trust is an independent charity that provides a 24 hour lifesaving Lifeboat and land based search and rescue service around the Sefton coastline. Commenting on the donation, Lifeboat Coxswain Keith Porter, said:- "We're responsible for all our own financing and fundraising and receive no regular Grant Aid toward the running costs of the Lifeboat service. The crew also commit their time freely. So without the generosity of those such as the Oddfellows, we couldn't do what we do. We can't thank them enough for their on going help."

The latest donation was raised at 2 of the Society's fundraising events, explained Oddfellows District Chairman, Lillian Leece:- "Our members dug deep at a recent dinner dance in the Isle of Man and at a garden party, in Southport. What the charity's Lifeboat and land rescue crews do day in, day out is extraordinary, especially considering they're volunteers. We're very pleased to help where we can."

Based on the Esplanade, the Lifeboat Station needs a minimum of ₤60,000 a year to stay in operation, notwithstanding to maintain its 2 Lifeboats, launch vehicles, ATV quad bikes and all other lifesaving equipment used by the crew.
