Holidaymakers raise charity cash

HOLIDAY home owners, staff and visitors to Pease Bay Leisure Park came out in force to raise valuable funds for Dunbar RNLI and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

Over £460 was raised at a recent fun day which was attended by over two hundred people and featured a search and rescue display from Borders SAR, the on-call rescue operation for the area. As well as cake and candy stalls, face-painting and magic shows, entertainment was provided by a dance troupe from the Lynella School of Highland Dancing in Eyemouth. Generate Radio provided live radio coverage.

Pease Bay Leisure Park manager Colin Boswell was delighted to present the charities with money raised at the event. He said: “We had a great turn-out on the day and everyone had good fun raising this money for causes that are very close to our hearts here at Pease Bay.

“Dunbar RNLI deserve to be recognised for the essential services they provide in the area, and Scottish Wildlife Trust is particularly close to our hearts as we have the privilege of enjoying a conservation area of exceptional beauty. It is thanks to our very friendly community of holiday home owners that we have been able to contribute to these two well-deserving causes.”
