The West Bridgford Branch of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) held a collection at Notcutts Garden Centre in Edwalton at the end of 2018.
Santa had taken up residence there and was being visited by families, who were also checking out stocks of Christmas trees, so the centre was busy despite grey, cold, damp weather.
The families were most generous and over the two days a grand total of £853 was collected.
This was a great way to bring the branches fundraising year to a close.
The RNLI would like to thank the management and staff of NotCutts for their help and co-operation and the centres visitors for their generous support,
Thank you all.
