On behalf of the committee of the Hawick and Denholm branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, I would like to thank all those who helped make our flag week, from August 20-25, such a success.
We raised £1,251.81 and without all the help from our collectors and donors in Hawick and Denholm, such success would be impossible.
Eighty per cent of all that we collect is spent on saving lives, both inshore and at sea. The crews of our lifeboats are all volunteers and they do appreciate the generosity of those supporters who live quite a distance from the sea.
