Rushen parish’s three MHKs are working hard on filling one Wellington boot each to raise funds for the Port Erin branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).

The ‘fill your boots’ campaign involves filling an RNLI safety Wellington boot with money by treating it as a swear/fines/spare cash box or paying a fine to indulge in cakes, etc.

The MHKs Phil Gawne, Laurence Skelly and Juan Watterson are keen to put some welly into the fundraiser to help with the RNLI’s massive costs – one pair of safety Wellingtons alone cost £42 and a life jacket is £330.

To find out about being a crew member of help with fundraising at the RNLI, phone 832154 or contact your nearest station.

The RNLI has five stations in the island, including in Douglas, Port St Mary, Port Erin, Ramsey and Peel.
