SARA Beachley Lifeboat Launch Tractor Appeal

The wonderful and trusty lifeboat launch tractor at SARA Beachley Lifeboat Station has served us well over the past 20 years. She was the brainchild of our own Chris Taylor – who – tired of replacing the brakes on the landrover from damage caused by frequent dips into the water off the slipway – spotted a dumper truck and figured that it could be the solution. He managed to get hold of one, set about re-engineering it and it has done the job perfectly ever since.

However, over 20 years of service has taken its toll and it now needs ever increasing amounts of TLC. It now spends a lot of time stripped down for repairs. The time has sadly come to retire this much loved machine and replace it.

Machines that can do this job do not come cheap, they have to be robust and reliable, capable of withstanding salt water and Severn mud.

The Beachley Launch Tractor 500 Club

The BLT 500 club is a monthly draw limited to 500 participants.  A draw will be held every month with a top prize of £500.  Other prizes will be added in on an occasional basis and may include a VIP trip in our lifeboat.  All monies raised will be used to fund the replacement of the Beachley station launch tractor.                                               

The cost to participate is just £5/month – less than the cost of a Sunday paper!  If you are interested in this simple and fun way to support us please email Mary Miller ( with your contact details.

The club will start up when we have 150 members!
