Barrow-station-receives-donation1

Byline: RNLI 2nd Coxswain Jonny Long and Branch Treasurer Jackie Bailey from the Barrow station were on hand recently when they were presented with a £5,000 donation towards their funds by Mrs Maureen Richardson of Walney Island.
Page Content: The donation was given in the memory of Maureens late husband, Frank, who was once a merchant navy officer  who served many years on the Orient line. Maureen remembered, ” Frank always said that having experienced the power of the sea whilst in the navy, he came to realise the meaning of the phrase ‘always respect the sea’. Because he had personally experienced the power of storms he always respected the lifeboat crews who went out to rescue people in trouble. When I decided to do something in his memory, this donation to the Barrow lifeboat seemed very fitting”.

2nd Coxswain Jonny Long said, “The RNLI is the charity which saves lives at sea, and relies solely on voluntary contributions from generous members of the public to provide our boats, equipment and training. We are extremely grateful to Maureen for this massive donation.”
