Middle Bar Singers raised more than £1,100 for Sidmouth Lifeboat.


Folk singing group the Middle Bar Singers have once again hit the right notes to raise more than £1,100 for Sidmouth Lifeboat.

The group has been supporting the rescue service for 15 years and has raised in excess of £10,000 during that time.

Members gather at the Anchor Inn during FolkWeek every year to regale crowds with traditional folk songs with a nautical theme.

The singers also held a fundraising auction, selling lifeboat-related items.

On the night, lifeboat crewman Martin Barnard joined the group to lead a sea shanty.

Guy Russell, senior coxswain for the lifeboat, thanked the singers after the auction for their amazing support over the years.
