Rentshield Direct fundraising activities provide welcome donation to local lifeboat station.

Employees from Rentshield Direct gathered at Teignmouth’s RNLI station to present the team and members of its lifesaving crew with a cheque for £725, raised by the company in 2019.

As Rentshield Direct’s nominated annual charity, the team organised a number of events and charity days throughout 2019 to raise funds for the local lifeboat station as a way of showing their appreciation for the life-saving work the RNLI undertake.

Mark Tidridge, Head of Rentshield Direct commented; “We have been a local business here in the town for over 15 years and like to support and give back to the local community as much as possible. The RNLI plays such a crucial role in the south west and particularly along the south Devon coast. We are delighted to be able to present our donation to the Teignmouth RNLI station and provide their fundraising arm with healthy cash boost at the start of 2020. This is a small token of our appreciation for all the amazing work they do, putting their own lives at risk in order to save others.”

Barrie Behenna from the fundraising at Teignmouth Station commented; “Teignmouth RNLI very much appreciates gestures of support from our community, in which it plays an integral part, and the generosity of Rentshield in naming us their charity of the year in 2019 is warmly appreciated. The money will be spent in support of ongoing crew training.”

The cheque was presented to Barrie Behenna and members of the Teignmouth RNLI team during its practice training exercises on Sunday 5 January 2020.
