The RNLI has been presented with a cheque for €10,600 from Swords Pavilions Shopping Centre following a successful charity partnership. The search and rescue charity which operates two lifeboat stations in North Dublin, at Howth and Skerries, raised funds throughout the year as well as sharing water safety advice with customers to the centre.

The RNLI was proud to join St. Francis Hospice as named charity partners for the busy Swords shopping centre for 2018. Funds were raised through bucket collections and the sale of yellow welly pin badges around the Mayday campaign.

Commenting on the partnership, RNLI Community Fundraising Manager Pauline McGann said, ‘We are extremely grateful to receive this cheque from Swords Pavilions Shopping Centre and were honoured to be chosen as a charity partner. Having two lifeboat stations in North Dublin, we are proud to offer a community-based lifeboat service which is crewed by volunteers who live and work in the area. The RNLI exists to save lives at sea and will launch at any hour to go to the assistance of those in trouble on the water. These funds will be used to support the work of our volunteer lifeboat crew.’

Swords Pavilions Centre Marketing Manager Deirdre King added, ‘We were delighted to have the RNLI with us throughout the year and to help them raise funds for a great cause. Nobody in North Dublin is too far from the sea and it is very reassuring to have them nearby should we need them. We are happy to have them back any time and will continue to support them in their great work. This significant sum of money will have to save lives at sea and keep people safe.’
