Lifesaving donations to RNLI will leave lasting legacy of husband
A woman who gave a substantial donation to the RNLI in memory of her late husband has visited one of the beneficiary stations to be thanked in person. Jennifer Martin was welcomed to Aberystwyth RNLI Lifeboat Station on Friday (25 September) by grateful volunteer crew members whose essential training and lifeboat kit received a boost by her generous donation.
Jennifer, who travelled all the way from her West London home to see how her donation will be put to best use at the west Wales station, said her late husband Christopher would have been proud to see the money go to such a worthy cause.
Christopher, a building surveyor who had a long-standing interest in the RNLI and admiration for the work of the charity's volunteers saving lives at sea, lost his brave battle with bowel cancer in 2010. He was 59.
A further substantial donation has been given by Jennifer to the RNLI for its services in Weymouth, which will be split between beach lifeguards and Weymouth RNLI Lifeboat Station.
