RNLI Visit and cheque presentation!

With 25 members attending the Padstow Life Boat station it was time to brave the winter winds and accidentally visit the lighthouse at the same time. After finally finding the life boat station members enjoyed a talk by 6 of the 28 crew members about the way the Spirit of Padstow works, how they launch it and past experiences and rescues. Members were also shown around the £2.7 million life boat, where they were able to investigate every aspect of the boat. We also learnt about the cost of kitting out crew members at over £1000 each.

After members had learnt about the RNLI and  the life saving work they do, it was time to hand over the cheque. Last years chairman Timmy Kenyon handed over a cheque on behalf of Launceston Young Farmers for £2356. This amazing amount of money was raised throughout the year and may well save someone's life.
