Dinner raises $8,000 for Delta Lifeboat

The Canadian Lifeboat Institution’s annual dinner and fundraiser got off to a flying start with John Heseltine from the Tsawwassen branch of the Royal Canadian Legion presenting a cheque for $1,000 towards the operation of the Delta Lifeboat. 

When presenting the donation to the Canadian Lifeboat Institution vice president Brian Cook, Heseltine paid tribute to the dedication and support given by members of the Delta Lifeboat to the local maritime community.
