Jamie’s recycled creations help Exmouth RNLI save lives at sea
Jamie Howard (7) from East Finchley in London has been creating his own collection boxes to help raise money for his favourite charity. The seven year old visited Exmouth lifeboat station to hand over £40 collected from his family and friends.
As a Stormforce member, Jamie is an enthusiastic lifeboat fan. Whilst he was on holiday, Jamie was thrilled to visit Exmouth Lifeboat station, where his Uncle Neil is a volunteer Tractor Driver. The highlight of the visit was to see the new state-of-the-art Shannon class lifeboat, R and J Welburn and to sit in the Shannon Launch and Recovery System driver’s seat, as his Uncle does soon after the pager goes off.
Jamie, accompanied by his younger brother, Noah (5) brought along one of the home-made collection boxes which contained £45.68. Chairman of the Exmouth Lifeboat Fundraising Team, Don Hodgkinson was impressed;
‘We’re always impressed with the creative methods young supporters find to help our fundraising. This amount will be able to contribute towards supplying our Crew volunteers with vital kit and training they need to help save lives at sea. We thank Jamie and his family for this help.’
