During the past week the Torbay Lifeboat Management Group (of which Lynn Spillet is a member) have reviewed our planned Torbay Station Seaside Special Event (15th August) and our Torbay Lifeboat Annual Service (22nd August). After taking into consideration the still high numbers of Covid cases in Torbay and the need to ensure Torbay Lifeboat Operations continue, we have taken the decision to cancel both events again this year. We consider that in the current pandemic environment, encouraging larger than normal numbers of supporters to congregate in the Torbay Lifeboat Station area, and near our Crew, could jeopardise the smooth operational running of Torbay Station, and we think it advisable to shelve our plans for this year in the hope that we can return next year with a bigger, safe event.
TLF Summer Fundraising week – 7th to 15th August
Our annual summer fundraising week is obviously very different again this year – no coffee mornings nor pub quizzes I’m afraid! However, we will still be out and about safely raising money and talking to the public about what we do and why that is so important to the RNLI and Torbay Lifeboat.
7th to 14th August – Cover the Flag outside the Lifeboat Station Wednesday 11th August – Souvenir Stall and Cover the Flag at Paignton Seafront Sunday 15th August – We end our fundraising week with TLF fundraising stalls just along the walkway from the Torbay Lifeboat Station (alongside SWUK, Bertie and Co etc). Included, will be a raffle stall – £2 per ticket with some great prizes! 28th and 29th August – Cover the Flags in Fore Street Brixham and Lifeboat Station
