HISTORY OF THE GUILD

Aldeburgh Golf Club very kindly hosted a Rubber Bridge Afternoon on 31st October. which was very well attended and, I’m told, thoroughly enjoyed by all present. The Committee provided an excellent tea and everyone very generously bought Raffle tickets. As a result, the Guild raised just over £1,000 for the Aldeburgh Lifeboats and we wish to thank the Golf Club and everyone who participated.
Thorpeness Golf Club Captain helps Aldeburgh RNLI
David Radford dedicated his year as Captain of Thorpeness Golf Club to raising funds for The Aldeburgh Lifeboats.
The events he organized during his term of office included a dinner dance, quiz night, Golf Charity Day, and an indoor
putting evening. David also marched 16 miles from Aldeburgh to Southwold over the May bank holiday weekend on a
sponsored walk, with an RNLI flag fluttering above his backpack. In all, his efforts raised the fantastic sum of £1,900 for our lifeboats.
On October 12th, his final day in office, on the green of the Thorpeness Golf Club, David presented a cheque to Steven Saint,
Coxswain of the “Freddy Cooper” and Rufus Gilday, Chairman of the Aldeburgh & District Lifeboat Guild, who expressed
their thanks to David for all his hard work and support.
During 2013 community support for the Aldeburgh Lifeboats has been very strong and reflects the pride that is felt at having our
own station, here on the coast. The efforts of many residents to donate time and money helps enable our station to
continue to play an important role in our town.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated items to our annual Street Fair held on a VERY WET Saturday, 24th August. The weather didn’t deter visitors and residents who flocked in looking for bargains and just for a fun morning out to help the Aldeburgh Lifeboats.
The response to our appeal for cakes, biscuits, jams etc, was absolutely amazing. The Cake Stall is always very popular, but this year exceeded all expectations!!
Unfortunately, we don’t know the names of everyone who donated, so please accept our very sincere thanks for all your efforts. The Cake Stall took £658.65, almost doubling last year’s total.
All the other stalls also did extremely well, and we raised a grand total of £3,503. compared to £3,009 last year.
Many, many thanks from the Committee and the Crew for your generosity.
Veda Crane, Vice Chairman
