RNLI Charity – Corporate Social Responsibility
Close to our families hearts, is the dedicated support that all at RNLI Charity (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) provide 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
RNLI charity volunteers put their lives at risk to save and help people in harrowing and distressing scenarios.
They don’t just save lives at sea, they also support in villages, towns and cities in times of flooding and work in some perilous conditions.
Simple 5p Pot Collection
To show our support, we are collecting 5ps. Simply collect a small pot next time you are in the garage and return when you have filled it with 5ps, creating a simple £2 donation.
We’ll then send the pots off to our local RNLI charity office where they will always be eternally grateful for your support.
To find out more, call in to Reception or contact Gail in the Service Centre on 01254 433383
