Island turns orange for lifeboats

Monday, February 18, 2013 - 11:09

GO ORANGE weekend has raised an estimated £11,500 for independent lifeboats on the Isle of Wight.
People donned colourful outfits and took part in activities to raise money and awareness for three lifeboat stations — Sandown and Shanklin, Ryde and Freshwater.
Schools held mufti-days and there were fundraising dance nights, quizzes and collections around the Isle of Wight.
Mark Birch, operations manager at Sandown and Shanklin Independent Lifeboat, said: "It was our fourth year of celebrating Go Orange Day and we get more support from people year after year."
For more Go Orange pictures and stories, please see the Isle of Wight County Press on Friday, February 22.
