Support from the Community – Ocean Ceramics, Winchelsea Beach

We’re very pleased to share that local ceramic artist Marian Mason is supporting the Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat as part of her upcoming festive Open Studio event.

Marian’s Ocean Ceramics Festive Open Studio takes place on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December, from 11 am to 5 pm each day. This charity fundraising event will be held at Marian’s studio at 7, Windmill Way, Winchelsea Beach, TN36 4LF.

As with Marian’s previous Open Studio Mad Hatter’s event back in the summer, Marian is holding her festive charity fundraising event to raise money for both the PLIRB and St. Michael’s Hospice. There will be mince pies and mulled wine, the opportunity to buy some of Marian’s fabulous ceramic creations, her wonderful Ghost of Camber Castle children’s book and additional items.

Marian is also hosting some of the PLIRB merchandise, including our greetings cards and 2020 calendars, so if you are hoping to buy some of these, please do take the opportunity to visit the Ocean Ceramics Open Studio and help raise money for community causes whilst you’re there. A huge thank you to Marian for holding this event, it really is appreciated.

Supporting the Community – Surviving Christmas Collection Point

Just a reminder that on Sunday mornings through November, the Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat venue is open as a collection point for items to be donated to Surviving Christmas.

Surviving Christmas is a local charity which provides support to individuals and families in need over the winter and festive period, across our local Hastings and Rother District area.

Surviving Christmas does have collection points in the local area, but as these are mainly in Hastings and as we’re always down at the base on Sunday mornings, it makes sense to offer those who live in our area the chance to make their donations to a local collection point.

The important thing about these food item donations is that the items should be non-perishable and should of course have a long enough date that they will still be in date over the Christmas / New Year period. To help, the next image is of information fromĀ  the Surviving Christmas website, listing the kinds of provisions that would be appreciated. If you’d like to know more, there’s plenty of additional information on the charity’s website and social media.

 

We know there are many friends of Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat who would be happy to help make a difference to someone else’s Christmas, so we’d be grateful if you could pass the message on about our collection point?

It’s great to work together with the community on this, and we’re very grateful to be receiving donations throughout November. We’ll share the progress of the box of goodies weekly on our social media, so please follow along and stay involved. Thank you!
