The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Florrie Irwin

Also known as: Flo.

I write on behalf of my partner Ron , who is still too upset by the loss of his mother in 1999 to submit this himself.
Ron's mother Florrie Irwin died at the age of 95 and all through her life she passionately supported two main charities... the RNLI and Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool. Whatever small amount of change she had left in her purse was willingly given ,when she could, to these two charities.
She held the RNLI closest to her heart as she lived all her life in Liverpool and came to understand the hardships of people linked to the sea as a career and as a way of life. Her final request was to have what small saving she had at the time of her death to be divided between the two charities she held dear.
When ever we go on holiday..mostly to coastal areas , we always call in to the local RNLI station and either purchase something or leave a donation on behalf of Ron's mum. Finally .. thank you all for such a courageous job.Take care all of you wherever you are. Ron Irwin, Angela Jenkinson & Andrew Jenkinson ( aged 14 ).
