Whitstable Maritime held a very successful Champagne and Oysters fundraising social event at the Marine Hotel on Friday 7th July for over one hundred guests.  The auction and raffle prizes included a painting by local artist Bruce Williams, a limited edition photograph of David Bowie by celebrity photographer Brian Aris, and a beautiful sea chest.  The total amount raised was over £2,600 which will used to fund much needed restoration work on the Whitstable Oyster Yawl 'Gamecock', built in 1907 in Island Wall for Ernest Stroud by the boatbuilders Collar Brothers.

Thank you everyone! Make sure you become a Friend and don't miss out on future events!
