Draw ticket comes up trumps for Lyme Regis RNLI - with a £5,100 prize
Lyme Regis lifeboat station’s number surfaced first – and netted it a cheque for £5,100.
Two company bosses nominated the charity as their favourite in a draw to receive the proceeds of a raffle.
And their ticket was first out of the hat.
The draw took place at the annual general meeting of the Association of Wholesale Electrical Bulk Buyers (AWEBB) in Windsor.
Ilminster man Tony Taylor, co-owner of C and S Electrical Wholesale, of Taunton, Chard and Exmouth and his business partner Simon Graydon, of Taunton- both keen fishermen – presented the cheque to the Lyme lifeboat crew during Sunday’s training session.
Lifeboat operations manager, Grahame Forshaw said: “This was a very generous donation to our lifesaving charity, and we will ensure it is put to good use.”
