Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of Seaford, Michael Logan, presented cheques of £650 each to Seaford Lifeguards, Newhaven & District Lifeboat Society, and the Newhaven Station of National Coastwatch Institution at a special presentation lunch last Wednesday.

Letters of thanks were received from all three organisations:

From Peter Gwilliam, Chairman.
Several years ago Seaford Lifeguards suffered a burglary which saw a vital piece of training equipment stolen. Seaford Rotary club came to our rescue then and provided a replacement.

Once again Seaford Rotary club has come to the rescue by making a considerable donation to replace an essential item of equipment that has been found to be beyond economical repair.

The generosity and continued support received from the Rotary club enables us at Seaford Lifeguards to maintain our service to the community and continue to offer personal development for our young people.

Thank you Rotarians, you are always there when we need you!

From Derek Payne. Newhaven & District Lifeboat Society (Committee)
On behalf of the R.N.L.I. and in particular the Newhaven Lifeboat station, I would like to express our most grateful and sincere thanks for the magnificent donation of £650 presented to me at the Seaford Rotary Club lunch yesterday.

Such generous donations really do help out with the development and maintenance of the local lifesaving work in this area.

The continued support from Rotary club members is very much valued and appreciated.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and all your Club members every success in the future.

From David Crozier. Station Manager, Newhaven NCI.
Thank you for your generous and very welcome cheque in support of the work we do at Newhaven NCI. The money will help greatly towards the replacement of the roof, and addition of safety measures at our lookout on Castle Hill, Newhaven.

The lookout building was erected in the 1960s and is in use 365 days a year by our team in keeping watch over our inshore waters and local coastline.

The fabric of the building does need regular maintenance and, occasionally, replacement as well.

Your generosity will aid us in continuing our valuable work.
