Students from the University of Exeter have plans to set up a fundraising branch on campus for their local lifeboat station. In addition, two other groups from the University already have events planned at the end of March specifically to support the launch and recovery vehicle appeal at Exmouth RNLI.
It is hoped that with enough support, a branch can be established that will both raise the profile of the RNLI amongst the University population, as well as raising funds too. Community Fundraising Manager for the South West, Frances Warren comments;‘We are delighted students at Exeter University are keen to get involved with fundraising for the RNLI and develop links with the local lifeboat station at Exmouth. A number of students at this University have been involved with the RNLI through summer jobs and it is wonderful they are keen to continue to support us in this way. The group at Exeter have some exciting plans for events over the next year.’
