The RNLI saves lives at sea.

In memory of my father Jim who whilst in the RAF for 35 years and had a farming background recognised the importance of the RNLI . He regularly donated whilst he was alive and in his will asked that a last donation be made in his memory. Whilst a small sum given the costs, if 1000 people were able to give similarly then the new Cowes lifeboat station would be funded. My father and mother lived for 25 years in Bournemouth and most days walked down to the beach or along the cliff top and thus would have seen the area where the new lifeboat will operate saving lives and reducing fear and injury. When my father visited my grandparents he was close to the Solent and as a child I remember many happy visits to the estuary, sea and Isle of Wight. As he would have said keep up the good work. His other love was his garden as can be seen from the photos of him this time last year aged 93.
