A CHEQUE for a magnificent £16,861 was handed over by Fishguard lifeboat fundraisers at their recent AGM.

Fishguard and Goodwick RNLI Fundraising Committee, chair, Sylvia Hotchin was delighted to present the cheque to RNLI coxswain Oz.

Sylvia thanked all the committee for their fundraising work throughout the year and the crew for their continuing support.

There were many others who were thanked including a special thanks to all in the community who continue to support the RNLI fundraising events.

"It would be impossible to raise such a good sum of money without them," said Sylvia.

The next event will be the Open Breakwater, courtesy of Stena Line on 26th May. There will be a chance to walk the north breakwater, meet the lifeboat crew, look at the boats and sample delicious cakes.
