Chiswick RNLI has launched a new way to help support the work of the local lifeboat.

The 'Friends of Chiswick RNLI' started at a special event at the Lamb Brewery (formerly the Barley Mow) last Thursday and the local lifeboat hope that drinkers will also become involved in fundraising-merely by raising a glass of the right kind of beer.

The Lifeboat will benefit from a donation of 25p per pint from the sale of new beer 'Lifeboat Volunteer' which will be sold in the pub and also in the Botanist in Kew.

The beer is being brewed in the pubs' own microbreweries.

The RNLI are keen to encourage the public to continue to help support them raise funds for the much-needed service.
