Jurassic Coast Mini Club donates £1,125 to Exmouth RNLI

A group of car enthusiasts who, over the last decade, have raised more than £9,000 for Exmouth RNLI, have donated yet more vital funds for the local volunteers who save lives at sea.

The Jurassic Coast Mini Club, which has organised the Weymouth to Exmouth Jurassic Rally for many years, is finally closing its doors and the organisation decided to donate its residual funds to the local charity.

Exmouth Lifeboat Operations Manager Kevin Riley said: “Our volunteers are obviously very sorry to hear that the Jurassic Coast Mini Club is winding down but extremely grateful to the organisation for their recent very generous donation. We are also very appreciative for the many years that the Club have steadfastly supported our lifesaving charity – having donated this fantastic sum of money will potentially allow us here at Exmouth to help fund and train crew, purchase vital equipment and continue our voluntary work saving lives at sea.”
