DELIGHT has greeted the award of a £1,000 cheque to the Selsey Lifeboat Association.
Shoppers at John Lewis chose overwhelmingly to support the charity as part of its Community Matters Scheme.
Ros Bonham, chairman of the Selsey Lifeboat Association, received the cheque from Lydia Bendle of John Lewis at Home and said: “We are absolutely delighted and grateful to John Lewis for their substantial donation to the Shannon class lifeboat appeal.”
Under the scheme, customers vote for three nominated charities they think should receive support.
Every three months, £3,000 is shared out.
