His son Robert said "Dad who passed away last year was a keen sailor and had to call upon the help of the RNLI on one or two occasions when he ran into difficulty whilst sailing. He liked to think that this donation would help the Hartlepool RNLI help his sailing friends at the yacht club should they ever have any issues at sea. So as a family we are really proud to present the cheque to the charity knowing that dad is playing his part in saving lives at sea and supporting the important work of the RNLI."

Hartlepool RNLI chairman Malcolm Cook said "This a really generous donation and on behalf of all the volunteers here at the Ferry Road lifeboat station I would like to say a huge thank you to the family for this donation. The volunteers are on call 24-7 and continually train for any eventually. We also have the best personal protection equipment available all of which is reliant on donations such as this."
