THE Wisbech branch of a building society has chosen the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) as its Charity of the Year for 2013.
Norwich & Peterborough Building Society has pledged to raise as much money as possible for the RNLI, which saves lives at sea.
Julie Berks, N&P Wisbech branch manager said: “I am delighted that we have chosen the RNLI as our 2013 Charity of the Year and are joining our colleagues in raising as much money as possible for this fantastic charity.
“The RNLI‘s volunteer crews play a vital role in keeping our seas and beaches safe so I’m proud that we will be doing our bit in supporting them and giving something back to thank them for all their hard work.
“I hope our customers and members of the public in Wisbech are going to get behind us in 2013 and help us raise a fantastic amount of money for the RNLI.”
