Philip had been a life-long supporter and admirer of the work of the RNLI. He and his wife Margaret had been bringing their family to Barmouth for holidays for over 50 years and no visit to the coast was complete without a visit to the lifeboat station.

They were met by Coxswain Peter Davies when they arrived on Sunday 3rd June to make the presentation who said:

‘We are very grateful to the Mason family for remembering us. Generous donations like these help enormously to help train our lifesavers and provide them with the kit they need to continue to save lives at sea.’
