A young fundraiser visits

During the Easter school holidays, Swanage Lifeboat Station welcomed Charlie Wells, aged 7 from Bristol, some three hours journey time.

Charlie, an enthusiastic member of Storm Force, saves his pocket money, and requests money rather than presents from friends and family for his birthday in order to donate to the RNLI. He brought with him a most welcome £150.

The highlight of Charlie’s day was to watch his first launch of Swanage’s Mersey and D Class Lifeboats on exercise.
