The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Brian Allen

Also known as: Mr Pickwick.

Brian was committed to ensuring everyone enjoyed themselves on holiday. He treated all as if they were best friends. As a result people came back to his bar year on year. He was a natural entertainer and was well respected by all who new him.

He served in the Merchant Navy as a young man, even though he never learnt to swim and was not comfortable with deep water. Paddling was about his limit. He respected the work of the RNLI and would be pleased to know donations to them were made in his memory.
