PJ’s son Ryan Curdenven brought his scooter and sidecar which was made for PJ but which he sadly never rode. Another scooter called Cornish Legends has been decorated with pictures of the Solomon Browne and the Union Star by its owner Kelvyn Wearne.

Section 8 scooter club had been to Penlee RNLI before and PJ had loved the visit, subsequently the club raised funds in his name.

Along with club members PJ’s wife Nicky was at the presentation with grandson Blake, who is a Storm Force member, and other family members.

The funds donated will be used to save lives.
