Swashbuckling fundraiser for RNLI

12 December 2012

Persimmon Homes Severn Valley has held a pirate themed fundraiser in support of its chosen charity; The Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Weston-super-Mare (RNLI).

Staff from the regional housebuilder raised over £2,000 by dressing as pirates and climbing aboard The Matthew for an evening filled with swashbuckling fun.

Nicola Reed, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, said: “The event was a great way to bring everyone together, have fun and raise money for such a worthwhile cause.

“The RNLI works tirelessly around the clock to save lives at sea.  Funding is essential to keep the service going and we hope that the money raised will help to maintain and continue their lifeboat search and rescue service around the South Bristol Channel.”

Persimmon Homes Severn Valley also added several bike vouchers to the bounty raised, so that the RNLI crew can quickly respond to emergency calls from its lifeboat station on Birnbeck Island.

Peter Elmont, chair of the RNLI fundraisers in Weston, said: “A huge thanks to everyone at Persimmon Homes Severn Valley for their continued support.  These vital funds keep the station going because the operation is entirely supported by voluntary donations.”
