The Looe Lifeboat Appeal - Ollie Naismith II

The Looe Lifeboat Appeal aims to raise £78,000

to replace the existing D-Class Inshore Lifeboat Ollie Naismith, which was funded in the memory of Ollie Naismith, a poplar local teenager who sadly died in a tragic accident in 2009 In 2010 the current D-Class Inshore Lifeboat Ollie Naismith was officially named and went on service at Looe. Ollies parents, Maxine and John Naismith spearheaded a fundraising campaign to raise the funds for the lifeboat which has gone on to save many lives in and around Looe, including the life of Louis Webber, a young local lad who was of a similar age to Ollie. The lifeboat is now coming to the end of its operational life so the team at Looe Lifeboat station have teamed up with the Naismith and Webber families to launch the Looe Lifeboat Appeal and raise the £78,000 required to provide a replacement lifeboat. The new boat will be called Ollie Naismith II and your donation to this community appeal will help to fund this lifeboat which will continue the selfless work of our volunteer lifeboat crew in Looe.
