Kernowkrew complete the London Marathon
           

Super proud of Louisa Nowell & Carly Byrne, two amazing Cornish maids who braved the hottest ever London Marathon in aid of Penlee Lifeboat.

 

In sweltering temperatures they completed the route in 4 hours 36 minutes and 44 seconds! 

A fantastic achievement.

 

Over the last 6 months the girls trained really hard, and worked tirelessly to reach their fundraising target for RNLI Penlee.

 

Well done to you both, now it’s time to celebrate!

Penlee crewman celebrates 30 years service
           

 

We are thrilled to announce that one of our longest serving crew members at Penlee, Rich ‘Nabo’ Nicholls has completed 30 years of service with the RNLI.  

He will now be presented with a 30 year service bar to be added to his Crew Long Service Badge. A Mousehole boy, Rich joined RNLI Penlee in 1987, following in the footsteps of his Dad, Leslie ‘Nabo’ Nicholls, and those he looked up to; ‘Whackers’ (Coxswain Trevelyan Richards) and all the Penlee Lifeboat crew. He has served under four coxswains, Kenny Thomas, Edwin Madron, Neil Brockman and Patch Harvey, on two lifeboats, the Arun class ‘Mabel Alice’ and the Severn class 'Ivan Ellen'.

Rich was Second Mechanic for 5 years and still stands in as Emergency Mechanic when required. His first shout was to the medical evacuation of an injured crewman from the fishing boat ‘Britannia’ - the shout that stands out most in Rich’s memory is to the fishing boat ‘Sabre’ from Newlyn, he knew all the crew and sadly one was lost. 

Congratulations and well done from us all Nabo - a great achievement!

Kernowkrew raising funds for the London Marathon

What a night! Huge thanks to everyone who supported Carly & Louisa’s fundraising auction at the Pirates Rugby Club last night. The clubhouse was full to capacity with a large crowd of very generous people - bidding was fast, furious and at times very competitive! Jack’s rugby boots eventually sold for £420! It was a fantastic evening much enjoyed by all.

With the help of the amazing Kelda Snell, the auctioneer, Nick George, and Barclays Bank, who generously donated £1,200, the KernowKrew and their team have raised £3,143 for RNLI Penlee. This will be added to their London Marathon fundraising pot.

A huge 'Thank you' from Belgian fisherman Jan Savels

A big thumbs up for the crew of the Penlee Lifeboat from Belgian fisherman, Jan Savels, who is currently recuperating at home after breaking his ankle in three places.

 

The crew of the Ivan Ellen lifeboat evacuated Jan from the Belgian trawler Z-53 Van Eyck a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday we received this update ‘Good afternoon Penlee crew, today on check doctors very optimistic, everything goes according to plan, thanks again. 

 

Jan Z53 Van Eyck greetings from Belgium. Jan & Viviane’. It’s always nice to hear from those we have rescued, and it’s good to hear that things are progressing well.

 

Thanks for taking the time to make contact Jan & Viviane.

2 years of fundraising for Penlee Lifeboat Station

Over the past two years our fundraising partnership with St Aubyn Estates and The Godolphin Arms at Marazion has raised a staggering £5,200 for Penlee Lifeboat Station.

It’s been a fantastic two years with lots of amazing fundraising events - RNLI Fish Suppers, Saturday Gang Coffee Mornings, Around The Mount Swim, RNLI Book launch & signing, and the return of the Penlee Lifeboat Day on the Mount. We’ve all enjoyed the hospitality friendship, and generosity of the Godolphin Arms team who threw themselves into each and every fundraising event. A big thank you to each and every one of you...

Good luck with your next two years of charity fundraising.
