Exmouth RNLI plays host to Mini adventure
Scores of Minis headed for Exmouth on Sunday and handed over �1,000 to the RNLI.
Some 70 cars took part in the 2011 Classic Jurassic Mouth2Mouth rally between Weymouth and Exmouth, ending their journey at the lifeboat station, near Maer Rocks.
Richard Darville, event organiser, said the rally had been organised to raise funds for the sea safety charity.
He said: “We had a unique opportunity to stop and display as many Minis as possible at the Exmouth lifeboat station to promote the RNLI, and it was the highlight of the day.
“We were made extremely welcome by the coxswain and all volunteers, members and crew.”

An Exmouth RNLI spokeswoman said: “Richard had booked a visit to the boathouse for the drivers, to conclude the rally.
“The sight of 39 Minis and the open doors revealing the all-weather lifeboat, Margaret Jean, attracted more members of the public to the boathouse to look around.”
