The Audlem Lass supports the RNLI

The RNLI festival and Boat Share Show will soon be upon us so don't forget to book your tickets for the evening event with a blast from the past from Abba Re-Bjorn. We have two FREE tickets per boat for moorers and a half price offer of £7.50 per ticket for additional tickets. Numbers are limited so call or email the marina office asap if you'd like tickets. The morning of the festival will see the return of the very popular Leonard Brothers dog show with entry on the day — every pooch is welcome and there are classes for all. Last year the Donkey Derby was such a great success we are repeating it again this year with the addition of chariot racing! If you'd like to sponsor a donkey for £15 or even ride on a chariot let us know or contact Joe Hoyles on 07880 727870, then sit back and place your bets.
This year we are also very pleased to have on board a Birds of Prey display and you can test your skills at hobby horse racing. Each year we welcome your support for this annual event and look forward to the raising money for such a great cause — having watched quite recently a documentary about the work RNLI lifeboats do, I would surely want them around if needed help — very brave people doing a very dangerous job to save lives.
