NCI FROWARD POINT BENEFITS FROM LOCAL FUNDRAISING DRIVE

17th May 2018. The Two Mile Oak Inn near Abbotskerswell has raised over £3,000 to be shared between two local charities

The National Coastwatch station at Froward Point and the Devon in Sight charities will be sharing the money after much hard work from Debbie Beechey, her staff and the kind customers at the Two Mile Oak Inn near Abbotskerswell has raised over £3,000. Over the last 12 months, the money has been raised by hosting donated book sales, collection boxes and a successful Christmas Draw. As a result, each charity will receive £1,585. Since 2014, Debbie from the Two Mile Oak Inn said she has valued the regular help of her staff and said the donations will ensure both charities are there when needed by the community.

 The Froward Point station, established in 2005, requires an average of £12,000 annually to provide its ‘Eyes along the coast’ service for mariners and walkers. NCI Froward Point station manager, Glyn Watkin said he was delighted with the donation and said it would be used to provide much needed Health and Safety improvements for the National Coastwatch volunteers.

 Cathy Duffy from Devon in Sight said: “We are so grateful for all the hard work and support of the staff and customers. It is so important that we are able to reach as many people with sight loss as possible and to continue with our service to the community.”
