The money had been raised by the society members transmitting from the station to the whole of the United Kingdom and Europe, with people who they talked to pledging cash for the charity.

Coxswain Charnley said, “This is a huge amount of money for us to receive and we are very grateful to David, Dick and the other members of the Furness Amateur Radio Society who raised it on our behalf. The RNLI is the charity which saves lives at sea and we receive all our income from voluntary donations. Without these donations we simply could not carry out our lifesaving work.”
