April is always pleased to hear about new locations willing to take a collection box to support the RNLI. Boxes can be supplied to shops, pubs, restaurants, bars, hotels, B&Bs - in fact anywhere where customers may be willing and able to donate a bit of loose change to help save lives at sea.

If you can help, please contact the lifeboat station on 01754 763011 or email with your name, location and a contact number, and April will be in touch.
