KIND-HEARTED Silhillians dig deep and helped raise £1,067 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
The Solihull branch of the RNLI collected the funds during its annual Lifeboat Day in the town centre and on Dovehouse Parade, Warwick Road.
David Herriott, press and publicity at Solihull RNLI, said: “After a two year break, due to the Covid pandemic, it was good to be able to resume out fundraising in support of the RNLI and, although the amount collected was a little down of previous occasions, the branch is extremely pleased with the result considering the current economic climate.”
As a charity independent of government, the RNLI relies totally on the generosity of the public.
Its volunteer crews give their time for free, but they need training, well-maintained equipment, lifeboats and shore facilities.
