RNLI offers 'Money can't Buy' auction on eBay

Howard Lake | 29 May 2007 | News

The RNLI is to run an online auction of “rare and exciting prizes” on eBay from 15 – 25 June to raise funds for its “Train One Save Many” appeal.

Prizes on offer include lunch with an RNLI lifesaver, a Honda Powerboat Experience day with Bond stunt girl Sarah Donohue, a skydive with the Red Devils, and a VIP training day at the RNLI’s HQ lifeboat college in Poole, including professional instruction.

RNLI are repeating the auction idea following success last year when the event raised over £1,000 for the Celebrity SOS appeal.

The Train One, Save Many campaign was launched in 2004: it aims to raise £10 million to make sure its lifeboat crew can continue to save lives at sea as safely and effectively as possible.
