Every penny counts
The customers who went to sea on local charter vessel Flamer 1V were encouraged by skipper Colin Penny to put some loose change in a bucket for the RNLI.
Colin called into the Weymouth RNLI lifeboat station just before Christmas and handed over the bucket which turned out to contain £111.96.
Teresa Drage, head of fund raising at Weymouth lifeboat station, said,'We want to thank Colin and his customers for their continued support for the RNLI'.
Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
