The Lord Combermere in Audlem are hosting the event with Hollow Floor Studios providing and setting up the sound systems. The musicians are giving their time for free to support this worthwhile life saving service and many local businesses have pledged their support with adverts in the event's programme to be sold on the day. As well as bar refreshments, the local cafes and takeaways will be open for business, all just a stone's throw away.
St David's RNLI lifeboat station was established in 1869 and covers 550 square miles of sea from Skomer Island to Porthgain and halfway across the Irish Sea. In April 2013, the crew welcomed their new TAMAR class lifeboat, RNLB Norah Wortley, which has already saved many lives off the Pembrokeshire coast whilst operating from its temporary mooring. To protect the boat, improve and continue their valuable service of saving lives at sea, the RNLI are building a larger station at St David's.
As well as supporting Lifejam 2014, you can also donate £5 by texting RNLI ST DAVIDS to 70300 or visit www.rnli.org/StDavidsAppeal.
Your support in helping to achieve funding for this very worthwhile appeal would be very much appreciated.
