Merryn had asked the friends she invited to her birthday party not to buy her presents but to put the money in a jar so that she could donate it to The Lizard Lifeboat. In this way she raised the tremendous sum of £60.00 - not bad for an 9 year old!! On behalf of us all at The Lizard Lifeboat Station THANK YOU MERRYN.
