Forest Hill Campaigner's mural to raise funds for RNLI

Local painter, healer and campaigner Martin Coombs has unveiled his latest work in a fish and chip shop in Honor Oak Park. The mural was painted, for free, in order to help raise money for a charity dear to Martin's heart, the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).

Having been a Conservative Councillor in Sydenham, Martin has been involved in a variety of campaigns, projects and charitable pursuits in the local area. The mural features a coastal scene and helicopter recue. Martin says to look out for Prince William piloting the rescue Sea King.

Over 40,000 people volunteer for the RNLI and it is funded entirely by donations, legacies and tax reclaims.

If you'd like to see Martin's mural, drop by the Fish and Chip Shop at 56. Honor Oak Park. Any small collection in the box is much appreciated.
