Sandy Hines from Bedfordshire presented New Quay RNLI with a cheque of £120 in memory of her late mother, Cynthia Davies who is laid to rest at St Ina's Church in Llanina.

And then Eileen Cassettare came from London with a cheque of £110 after she and her work colleagues at Woolwich JCP raised the money by holding a dress down day.

Roger Couch, New Quay RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said, “We wish to give our heartfelt thanks for these kind donations. Without people giving money we cannot continue with our lifesaving at sea. The RNLI is a charity and relies on fundraising and donations. Our volunteers provide a 24 hour search and rescue service and is independent of the Coastguard and government. We very much appreciate all donations.”
