RESIDENTS of Homebredy House in Bridport have raised more than £200 for the RNLI.

The sale of a charity calendar created by residents of the retirement housing in East Street, Bridport, made £106.

Resident Bill Hancox handed over a cheque to Krys Lavery, manager of the RNLI shop in Lyme Regis, at a tea party this week where a further £104.50 was raised through the sale of RNLI merchandise – boosting the total funds to more than £200.

Mr Hancox put the calendar together, with contributions of poems and paintings from members of the Homebredy House art and poetry clubs.

The front page is devoted to lifeboats and crews with a collection of humorous rhymes and pictures to enjoy throughout the year.

Nick Marks, volunteer operations manager at Lyme Regis lifeboat station, said: “We are very grateful for the residents of Homebredy House for this donation. The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea; it is independent of coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service.”
