Littlehampton Lifesavers Supper Success
The Lifesavers Supper, raising funds for Littlehampton Lifeboat station was held last week at The Fish Factory restaurant, the ticket only event was organised by Malcolm Somner and his team of volunteer RNLI fundraisers, working closely with Andy Sparsis the proprietor of The Fish Factory.
A champagne and canapés reception followed by a sumptuous fish supper started the evening, with entertainment from a three piece band, finished off with an outstanding array of auction lots and raffle prizes generously donated by businesses in the local area.
The event was enjoyed by more than eighty people including, Lady Mary Mumford, the president and Peter Cheney the chairman and one of the founders of the Littlehampton Lifeboat station.
Due to peoples generosity a massive £3,500 was raised including funds raised from festive RNLI goods on sale in the restaurant all week. As the RNLI is independent of the Coastguard and the government, it depends on voluntary donations to maintain its rescue service. If you do have a moment this week, pop down to the Fish Factory in Littlehampton enjoy their £6 express menu lunch and purchase some festive goodies to support the RNLI.
