A SUCCESSFUL coffee morning run by the Tavistock branch of the RNLI also saw two presentations.

The morning made a profit of £518.61 from stalls, including cakes, cards and Christmas ornaments, and a raffle. A large number of local businesses donated prizes or vouchers, for which the branch expressed their thanks.

In addition, the Plymouth RNLI shop had a stall with calendars and cards, which took a further £196.60.

During the event, Clive Pattison was presented with a certificate of thanks to mark his Wacky Race fundraising earlier in the year, which raised £1,500 for the RNLI.

Branch secretary Ann Parsons was also presented with a Volunteer Long Service Award by Ellie Walker, area community manager, marking 40 years of volunteering for the charity.
