Maryport's Lifeboat Lotto Makes Its First Draw

Maryport Inshore Rescue’s new Lifeboat Lotto has made its first draw at the Maryport Aquarium.


The numbers drawn were 1,5,7 and 16 but there was no winner – so the match four jackpot rolls over to a super £1100 next week.


But there could be lucky winners in line for a £25 prize for matching three of the four numbers drawn.
There is no need to claim, all winners will be paid automatically by cheque.


Lifeboat Lotto was launched earlier this year to raise badly needed fund for the volunteers to keep their lifeboat service afloat.  


Maryport Inshore Rescue is an Independent Lifeboat , not connected to the RNLI.  It provides a valuable rescue service to the Solway Firth and surrounding areas. They are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in all weathers.


The volunteers offer an emergency response service at sea – with their top of the range 350HP craft.


They also save lives inshore and inland in floods and swift water. The full crew are qualified swift/white water technicians.
They were busy during the recent storms and one rescue included the driver of a supermarket delivery truck – trapped by wild weather on an exposed coastal road.  


They rely on kind donations from members of the public and local businesses to stay afloat and hope the new Lotto will add substantially to that income as it has done for other independent Lifeboats around the country.
