Yeovil Town supporters attending last Saturday's home match against Bristol Rovers have raised over 900 pounds for good causes. Representatives from the Yeovil RNLI were guests at last Saturday's game, and a group of 14 volunteers from Yeovil took part in a half time collection, with eight members of the Lyme Regis RNLI crew also present at the game.
The RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) is an independent charity that provides a 24 hour lifeboat rescue service, as well as providing education on how to avoid getting into trouble in the first place. The Chairman of the Yeovil group Peter Burrows said that he was delighted with the support the charity got from Glovers fans on the day:
"The fans dug deep to help our charity and we are delighted with the result. Lyme Regis is our nearest lifeboat so we decided to forge closer links with the crew. We were very pleased with the help Yeovil Town gave us and we hope to make the collection an annual event."
