On Saturday 24th August, Aldeburgh RNLI held its annual open day at the lifeboat station on the beach. The aim of the event was to increase awareness of the amazing work of the RNLI and also to raise much-needed funds so they can continue the excellent service they provide.
RRT Aldeburgh was privileged to lend a hand on the day, serving around 250 meals and raising well over £600 in donations for the RNLI – very gratefully received by the local coxswain and lifeboat team.
