The Arranmore RNLI voluntary fundraising committee has been busy over the last two weeks.
They held a cake sale on Easter Sunday which raised €706 and, yesterday, organised a car wash.
JeanPierre and Marie Benedict have been involved in raising funds for the Arranmore RNLI since taking up permanent residence on the island along with their two sons.
Speaking to Marie and Jean Pierre at the car wash, both have expressed their delight with island living and all the services available.
Jean Pierre who is from Strasbourg, France, and American Marie said: “We moved to Dublin in 2001 where both our sons were born and wanted to eventually settle on an island.
“After much research, we found Arranmore, the island has all the services we needed and wanted and it is great to be able to contribute to the community and be involved with the RNLI.”
