Barrow Lifeboat receives generous donation from Furness Amateur Radio Society
The RNLI is the charity which saves lives at sea, and in order to do so we rely mainly on generous donations from members of the public for our income.
The Furness Amateur Radio Society are ardent supporters of the RNLI’s Barrow station and have, in recent years, regularly broadcast from our station to raise money for the lifeboat, spreading the word about our charity to all of the UK and much of Europe. This year over two weekends their efforts raised an impressive £650 for Barrow Lifeboat and we were delighted to be able to thank them as they made a cheque presentation aboard our Tamar Class all weather lifeboat ‘Grace Dixon’.
