For the 2013 RNLI collections, Betty Stogs from Skinners on her own collected £1808.62 which is truly remarkable. Special thanks must go to all the groups who enetered the Beat Betty Challenge. This was a new compeition for 2013 to see if the groups could individually raise more money for the RNLI than betty.
'Shake A Leg' came closest winning the prize with a total of £932.70 and the 'Pirates of St Piran' came second with £850.62 - both brilliant acievements as well as everyone else who collected.
