The Club undertakes a number of special events each year, usually including two or three RNLI fundraising displays, plus a club BBQ (weather permitting!), a Christmas lunch for members and partners as well as local model shows and some organised visits. Dates for these events are usually discussed and then fixed at monthly club meetings.
Events undertaken in 2018
RNLI collection Saturday 30th June 2018 - At Asda Store, Atlantic Village, Bideford. This collection raised £200 on behalf of the RNLI - £150 going to the Appledore Crew Fund and £50 the central RNLI funds. Many thanks to Asda and their generous customers.
Club BBQ - Sunday 22nd July 2018 - Glorious weather this year and a great success.
Appledore RNLI Annual Tea at Tapeley Park Nr. Instow- Saturday 18th August 2018. Each year the club supports the Tapeley Park RNLI fundraising day by putting on a Modal Boat display. See new page under 'Events' for more details
Lunch for members and partners - Saturday 8th December 2018 at the Royal North Devon Golf Club Westward Ho! 12.30 for 1.00pm start. Please note that the restaurant will now accept card payment for your meal.
RNLI collection Saturday 22nd December 2018 - At Tesco store, East the Water, Bideford. This collection raised a record £575. All money raised goes to the RNLI, with the majority going to the crew fund at Appledore. It is hoped that this will help them to purchase a new set of night goggles for use on the inshore lifeboat.
New Dates for 2019 will be added in due course.
