The West Bridgford Branch of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) ventured into new territory by holding its first collection in the Blue Diamond garden centre at East Bridgford.
The branches hardy perennials attended with their collecting boxes.
The day started overcast but by midday the sun was out and shinning on the RNLI as by the end of day visitors to the centre had donated £397.79 to the RNLI.
This was a splendid result.
The RNLI would like to thank the management and staff of Blue Diamond for their help and co-operation and their customers for their generous support.
