The proceeds are still being totted up so the final tally should exceed a grand.

'We had people come from afar just to see our station which shows the hard work behind the scenes really paid off', said one of the organisers, Tabz Nixon.

A constant stream of visitors were shown around the station including both lifeboats and children posed for photos with RNLI mascot Stormy Stan.
