Felixstowe Beach Hut and Chalet Association raises £245
Felixstowe Coastwatch is supported financially by many local firms and organisations. One of these, the Felixstowe Beach Hut and Chalet Association has recently raised funds for us by holding an open day and book sale at one of its Beach Huts. Owner Barbara Grace, supported by Roberta and Di presented the £245 raised to Senior Watchkeepers Dick Daniels and Richard Williams. This is in appreciation of the efforts of Felixstowe Coastwatch to help keep the users of the Beach Huts safe and secure.
