AG Adams presented £319 to Barry Dock RNLI lifeboat station at the weekend after family and friends attendeding a Christmas service held at AG Adams funeral home on Gladstone Road, held in memory of their loved ones, pledged funds to the charitable cause.

Barry Dock RNLI lifeboat station is grateful for the on-going support of AG Adams and the wider Barry community.

Alan Pacey, of AG Adams, said “It is a privilege to raise money for a local and worthwhile charity.”'

The Barry Dock RNLI lifeboat station relies on public donations to carry out its lifesaving work.

The station - one of the busiest all weather stations in Wales – uses a volunteer crew who, during the last winter and some of the worst storms the country has seen in years, took the all weather lifeboat to sea.

Crew undergo continuous training so they can deal with anything the sea throws at them when rescuing others.

The charity supplies its volunteers with the best equipment available so that when they respond to the call to save others at sea, they are as safe as they can be.

This latest donation, via A G Adams, will enable the station's lifesaving work to continue.

All donations are welcome.
