Dragon roars to aid of Angle RNLI
Representatives from Dragon LNG visited Angle lifeboat station recently to present the crew with a microwave oven, goodie hamper for the crewroom and a cordless, lightweight vacuum cleaner for the all weather lifeboat.
Lynette Round and Laura Callan, from Dragon LNG, were welcomed to the station by Julian Hammond, Angle RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager, and Linda Foulstone, Angle RNLI Treasurer.
The gifts were presented to the crew before their weekly exercise launch. Julian thanked the delegation, on behalf of the officers and crew, for such a generous contribution to the station.
Lynette responded by thanking the crew for their dedication and service to the area and went on to say that Dragon LNG was always looking to support local causes.
After the presentation and a tour of the Tamar class all weather lifeboat Mark Mason with Coxswain Lewis Creese, Lynette and Laura stayed to watch the launch of the lifeboat.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
