The annual Mudeford funday helped celebrate Mudeford RNLI’s 50th anniversary yesterday. Thousands attended this annual fundraiser event helping to raise money towards the running costs of Mudeford’s RNLI station.
There was much to do for the whole family from raft races to duck races, bumper cars to train rides. There were also displays from Mudeford RNLI, the Coastguard helicopter and the Hawker Hunter ‘Miss Demeanour’.
Andy Hack, Mudeford RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said ‘ This is an important year for the station as we commemorate the commitment of volunteer crews past and present, and our supporters who have maintained the lifeboat service here over the last 50 years. When looking back at the history of our station and the courageous actions of our volunteer crew, we all feel extremely proud and privileged to be involved in maintaining what is an important part of our local community and the RNLI’s ring of safety around the coastline.’
In order to maintain the enviable tradition of the local lifeboat service and support the selflessness of the volunteer crew, the team rely on public donations and legacies, no matter how small so events like this are vital to our continuing work. Thank you for your help – past, present and future.
