Congratulations to Tara’s Life Boat who is our charity of the month this November!
So far just over £71,000.00 has been raised just by supporters shopping online via Give as you Live, making one off donations and doing fundraising events!
What is the charity about?
When James’ wife Tara Scougall lost her 11-month battle with cancer, aged just 43, their family wanted to make sure that something positive came out of her death.
At her funeral in Houghton, they decided to raise money for a cause which meant so much to her. The children, Eleanor, nine, and Edward, eight, and friends of Tara wanted to raise enough money to buy a lifeboat for the RNLI.
Over the course of the next two years they have aimed to raise £2 million for the 44ft life-saving craft.
James hopes to smash the bottle of Dom Perignon champagne he and Tara had intended to open to celebrate with against the side of a Shannon class vessel he named in her memory.
Tara thought the RNLI was the most worthy charity, wherever you go there are volunteers going out saving people’s lives.
