Volunteers for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) collected almost £3,000 in donations recently.
Crews of local RNLI volunteers were at the Tesco stores in Brackley and Towcester from May 23 to 25, and at Towcester Races on May 23 collecting donations of £2,937.24 for the lifeboat service.
Jeff Sutherland-Kay, chair of the RNLI’s Northampton branch, said: “The Tesco store collections were part of a national Tesco collection for the RNLI, with £1,344.75 donated at the Brackley store and £1,230.75 at Towcester.
“This wonderful support was added to collections that the Northampton RNLI branch arranged at three other Tesco stores to make a grand total of £5,338.
“The collection of £361.74 at Towcester Races was a bonus and made it a very busy weekend.
“Our volunteers in the south Northants area worked very hard indeed and it was an amazing result.”
