Catching up – Presentation for fundraising activities


Emily Jarvis receives her certificate from Councillor Paul Tilsley

Back in July 2013 at the annual Sheldon Country Fair where the Branch always have a presence it was my pleasure to photograph 11 year old Emily Jarvis receiving a certificate of thanks from the RNLI for her fundraising activities. Making the presentation was Councillor Paul Tilsley.

Emily often attends Branch events and engages with young people to tell them about the RNLI and also about the publicity D class if it is at the event.


Congratulations Emily
