RNLI/Luke Heritage

After watching Saving Lives at Sea, these four supporters decided that instead of receiving presents from their grandparents for Christmas this year, they would prefer to give their present as a donation to the RNLI. The family were shown around the lifeboat station and boats by Coxswain Graham Heritage and Mechanic Luke Heritage.
