Garden Party at Buckingham Palace

Two local Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) fundraisers had a royal day out recently when they attended the RNLI 200th Anniversary Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

Janet Maughan from Overwater Marina attended the event with Christine Cottrell who, with her late husband Rodney Cottrell, has been a staunch supporter of the Crewe and Nantwich Branch of the RNLI. The prestigious event took place as the RNLI celebrated 200 years of saving lives at sea on the 4th of March this year – all thanks to volunteers giving their time to save others, all funded by voluntary public donations.

Christine says "The RNLI work tirelessly saving lives around our coast and are often involved in inland flood rescues too. As sailors my husband and I have been lifelong supporters and it was fabulous to attend the Palace Garden party and see so many volunteers and crew being thanked in such a splendid location."

Alongside supporting the Crewe and Nantwich branch of the RNLI, Christine & Rodney instigated the Audlem Lass, a RNLI fundraising trip boat that runs out of Overwater Marina, near Audlem.

Run by volunteer crew, the Audlem Lass raises funds for the RNLI by giving boat trips from the Marina to the bottom of Audlem locks and back -- it runs on weekends and bank holidays from Easter until the end of October.
