Some of the more unusual past donations include a set of dentures on gold mount, war medals, mother-of-pearl theatre binoculars, an 1837 hallmarked fish-knife and a Victorian bakelite locket containing a lock of hair.The donated items are sold at auctions or fetes to raise funds for training and equipment for RNLI volunteer crews.Maren Caldwell, RNLI Head of Regional Fundraising and Communications said: “The Jewellery Appeal began in 1986 and, since then, has been run by Roy Norgrove, who sadly died last year. We would like to thank him for all his dedication and effort. Other willing volunteers are now continuing Roy’s good work.”The charity accepts all good quality items, including rings, bracelets, chains, earrings, watches, and any other gold and silver items.www.rnli.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
