LARS raises over £10,000 for RNLI

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society has raised over £10,000 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

As well as running special event stations at RNLI station open days and for RNLI fund-raising events such as the Morecambe Bay Cross Bay Walk and Christmas Reindeer runs, the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society also organises its own annual fund-raising week in January to coincide with the RNLI’s own SOS Day. Since it started being organised as an offical RNLI fund-raising event in 2009 SOS Radio Week has raised over £10,000.

Participating Amateur Radio operators and groups around the UK and throughout Ireland, together with their sponsors, are to be thanked for making this milestone in the group’s history – it’s a tremendous achievement.

To take part in the next SOS Radio Week (2013) keep an eye out on the SOS Radio Week web site for registration details – registration is usually launched at the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society stand at the National Hamfest at Newark.
