JANUARY can traditionally be quite gloomy with Christmas and New Year celebrations a fading memory – so why not put some sparkle into your month and have some fun with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and take part in the charity’s SOS Day?
SOS Day is one of the RNLI’s biggest annual fundraising days – taking place on Friday, Jan 31.
It’s all about doing something enjoyable whilst helping the RNLI to raise lifesaving funds to enable our volunteers to carry on saving lives at sea.
You, your place of work, school or group can take part in SOS Day and help to support the three lifeboat stations in Wirral, ensuring that their volunteer crews have the vital equipment and training needed to guarantee that they are ready to launch at a moment’s notice.
Organising a simple fundraising event is a great way to get involved and past examples have included sponsored indoor rowathons, guessing the amount of sweets in a jar and dinner parties where each guest donates money according to how they rate the food.
One to pencil in the diary if you don’t fancy arranging an event there will be an RNLI SOS Lunch, Sample our Scoff at Willaston Memorial Hall from 12.45-3pm on Jan 31.
The speaker will be Gavin Hunter, who will be discussing the history of Wirral’s Dee coastline. Admission is £13.50 and is by ticket only. Please contact Rosemary Hannay 0151 336 8455.
