Dover Lifeboat - RNLB City of London II (Credit RNLI/Martin Collins)The Dover RNLI Fundraising Team are holding a big quiz night on Saturday 24th October to raise funds for the town’s lifeboat. Teams of six to eight people are invited to take part in this fun and friendly quiz.

The quiz will be held in the St Mary’s Parish Centre, Dover beginning at 1900hrs. A ploughman’s supper is included in the ticket price but competitors should bring their own liquid refreshments.

Tickets cost £5 per person and can be obtained from the Lifeboat Station or by phoning Barbara Stapleton on 07910 123259.

Chair of the Fundraising Team Barbara Stapleton said: “As has recently been reported, by the media, it has been an incredibly busy year so far for our Lifeboat and this makes it so important that we raise money. The money will go to keeping the crew trained and the lifeboat maintained ready for any emergency in the Channel.”

Coxswain of the Dover Lifeboat Stuart Richardson said: “The Fundraisers are very much the unsung heroes of the RNLI and without their constant hard work the level of service the crews provide to those in trouble would be much reduced.”
