We are hugely grateful to The Eight Foundation for funding a new Community Resilience Team rescue boat and trailer.
With our next CRT due to launch in Portsmouth in the New Year and other CRTs in the pipeline, the new boat will be a potential life-saver.
We were delighted to receive a visit from The Eight Foundation’s Victoria Riggs who handed over a cheque for £5,000 to buy the new equipment.
She told us that staff at the foundation, and at Eight Wealth Management, were impressed by the work that Serve On does in the community and thrilled to help us.
They are also looking forward to a competition to name the new boat when we get it.
We look forward to showing them the new boat in action.
