RNLI 200 Club January Draws

Happy New Year!!!

This month’s draws are set to take place on Sunday 31st January at sunset (16.44hrs) in Jill and Derek’s garden and due to the continuing lockdown restrictions their neighbours will be peeping over the fence to ensure fair play.

As you know, we have achieved 200 numbers so this means that the weekly prize is £50.00

Below is a copy of the email sent from Sue and Peter Woods earlier this month:

Dear Supporters

I am writing on behalf of all of the Committee of Maldon Branch of the RNLI to thank you all for your ongoing support for the Basin Oars 200 Club.

 We have today banked the amazing cheque for £5,020 and this will, of course continue the work of the RNLI – Saving Lives at Sea.  It was a great shame that the Sponsored Row could not take place over the Christmas/New Year – we all know why – but the great thing about the 200 club is that the RNLI can still benefit.  I believe that it would have been the 30th year that ‘The Girls’ had taken part in the MLSC Sponsored Row – but I am sure that they will be back next year in their smart, refurbished boat.

 Your help and support is very much appreciated.

 Take Care 

  Sue Woods (Chairman) and Peter Woods (Treasurer)
