Once again this year the volunteers of the Littlehampton lifeboat station took to the town with collection buckets, raising money for the RNLI on SOS day.

Spirit of Juniper’ the station’s D-class lifeboat was driven into the High Street accompanied by the crew, shore crew, fundraisers, family members and even Amber the dog.

Nick White lifeboat operations manager said, ‘Despite the wintry weather conditions the people of Littlehampton were warm, friendly and as always generous with their donations. A big thank you to the girls in Gregg’s who kept us all warm by donating tea and coffee’.

As well as the collection in town there was a steady flow of visitors to the lifeboat station, all in all a good day. The money raised was an amazing £1,167.21
