Record Regatta Week collection

SIDMOUTH Lifeboat got a record 286 boost from Beer Regatta Week- despite being unable to attend over a safety hitch.

A tractor tyre problem may have ended the lifeboats involvement in this months fun, but it didnt stop Louise Harrison and other organisers collecting the bumper sum- the biggest ever.

Kind Louise and chums also raised cash for the RNLI. Lifeboat trustee Richard Thurlow thanked collectors for their magnificent help.
