Celebrating Success
LadiesScarborough Ladies Lifeboat Guild has been looking back on another successful year.

In 2019, the RNLI fundraisers organised a fashion show at the Crown Hotel, an afternoon tea at the Palm Court, a table-top sale at the lifeboathouse and a Christmas fayre at the Park Manor.

In addition, members collected £900 worth of 5p, 2p and 1p coins. Other ways of raising money included donation boxes at hotels, shops, etc, funeral collections, donations by the public and RNLI personnel and the ubiquitous raffles and tombolas.

All together, it came to £6,533, taking the total raised since the guild's inception in 1927 to about £174,500.

At the guild's next meeting, at the Red Lea Hotel on 18 February, the speaker will be Dawn Bell from Shipton's jewellers. The next fundraiser is a coffee morning with coxswain Lee Marton and other crew members at the Park Manor Hotel on 24 March, from 10.30am until noon.

The photo shows the guild's six committee members celebrating their achievement outside the lifeboathouse. L-R: chairman Gladys Freeman, press officer Pauline Brown, secretary /treasurer Lynne Garforth, speaker secretary Judith Hargreaves, box secretary Minnie Raper and events secretary Liz Ashworth.

At the guild AGM in January, thanks were given to members for their hard work and to Scarborough businesses, hotels and shops, who never fail to lend their support willingly.

The guild has a luncheon on the third Tuesday of the month from October to April at the Red Lea Hotel. "We have a raffle and, most months, a speaker", says Lynne.

New members are welcome; ring Gladys on 366630 or Lynne on 373788.
