We have been blown away by the response so far to the Appeal. Our facebook post has been shared lots of times and has reached over 7,000 people. It underlines what we suspected: the Coastguard Pole really has touched the lives of so many visitors to Baggy Point and is a popular icon of North Devon.
The donations box has been installed at Baggy Point and we’ve put up a replica pole in the car park to raise awareness too. You can buy a raffle ticket and enter a draw to win £10,000.
But if you’re not able to visit Baggy but still want to show your support you can visit our JustGiving page here.
