Beer boost for Sidmouth Lifeboat

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 lifeboat’s involvement in this month’s fun, but it didn’t 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.
