Local couple raise money for Horton and Port Eynon RNLI
Keith Reynolds and Sonia Davies who have a house in Horton organised an event in the village to raise money for the Horton and Port Eynon RNLI Lifeboat Station.
They raised £2,000, which has been presented to the team of volunteers and the couple recently visited the station and were given a guided tour by crew members.
Lawrie Grove the Lifeboat Operations Manager for Horton and Port Eynon RNLI, said: 'As a charity the RNLI is dependent on donations to continue its work. We are extremely grateful to Keith and Sonia for their generous donation.’
