Our Durban Life Boat Club (over 50's supporters and donors) had a wonderful week of talks and teas.On the 2 March 2016, Janet and Helen Wienand, our new Life Boat Club team member, addressed the Evening Women's Auxiliary in Northdene KZN on the 2 March. It was a fantastic evening which resulted in 20 new members and many bequests to Sea Rescue. They are busy organizing a visit to the Durban Rescue Base soon. Helen enjoyed her first experience of Sea Rescue and What We Do.

On Friday 3 March, Janet met with a new bequestor, Mrs Susie Dwyer, and presented her with her certificate and gold badge on a house visit to Mt Edgcombe. She also attends many of the Life Boat Club functions and is a keen member.
On 6 March Janet represented Life Boat Club at Fernhill Hotel in Howick to talk on Sea Rescue to Hilton and Howick Rotary. Twelve new members joined the Life Boat Club and quite a few made bequests. A member even wore his NSRI golf shirt he had bought in Cape Town and recounted a story when he was walking on Robberg and three scholars were washed into the sea and were saved by NSRI. Luckily he had taken a photo of the emergency number at the start of the walk.
