VINTAGE champagne sold at a recent raffle has netted the RNLI a cool £1,130.
Murray’s Seafood Restaurant in Cowes High Street, Isle of Wight hosted the raffle to raise money for the Cowes RNLI lifeboat station appeal.
The seafood restaurant was set up 35 years ago by Fran, an RNLI committee member and manager of the charity’s local charity shop and Brian Bracken.
