CREW on the RNLI Barry Dock lifeboat were flooded with joy after receiving the proceeds of a charity car wash last week.
Funeral directors AG Adams visited Barry Dock RNLI lifeboat station to present £330 to the volunteers.
Alan Pacey, of AG Adams, said: “We like to support local charities and consider the RNLI to be a very worthwhile charity. We are proud to support the lifesaving work of the station.”
The Barry Dock RNLI lifeboat station was created in 1901 as the new docks brought increased shipping to the area.
The volunteer crew of the station are now kept busy with a variety of emergencies.
Nicola Davies, sea safety officer for the RNLI, said: 'We would remind everyone to always wear a lifejacket when on the water. It really can mean the difference between life and death.”
