RNLI Lifeboat Stations in Donegal have extended their immense gratitude to Donegal Craftmakers for selecting the RNLI Lifeboats as the designated charity for their annual Craft Fair at the Silver Tassie on Sunday.
The event was a huge success, with a remarkable amount of €456 raised.
The team would also like to express their thanks to the Crafters who contributed items for an upcoming raffle and supported the event on the day. The winners of the raffle include Jim O’Brien from Strabane, Cora Murray from Letterkenny, Anne Quinn from Fintown, Matthew Calvert from Newtownards, and Rose McGhee from Dungloe.
Additionally, the team is incredibly grateful to the staff at Tesco for selecting them as beneficiaries for the Community Fundraising through the Blue Tokens. This fund is now open and will continue to operate through the New Year.
As the RNLI is independent of Coastguard and Government support, the team is entirely dependent on the support of the community and legacies to maintain its Rescue Service.
It is essential to note that County Donegal has the longest coastline in Ireland, and with the presence of three Lifeboat Stations, including Lough Swilly (Buncrana), Aranmore Island, and Bundoran, the RNLI crews are always ready to respond to any emergency calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The RNLI Donegal team encourages everyone to lend their support by grabbing a few tokens whenever they go shopping.
