Volunteers at all stations were on hand to welcome and thank her on her way through.

To welcome Emma recently, a team of volunteers headed up by our Chairman Frank Ranson, were on hand to receive the cheque which was recently presented.

On behalf of all our volunteers at RNLI, we thank the Past Mayor for her efforts and generosity in this fundraising.
