Lyme Regis Rotary Club donation will help RNLI volunteers search wide areas at sea
Lyme Regis lifeboat crew has been given two pairs of powerful binoculars for use during searches.
They have been bought thanks to a £500 donation from the town’s Rotary Club which raised the money at a golf day.
The binoculars will be used by the RNLI volunteers both aboard the aboard the lifeboat and on land.
They were officially presented to the crew at a recent training session by Rotarians Jim Moseley and Tina Le Clercq.
Lifeboat helmsman Tim Edwards said: ”The Rotary Club asked us if we needed any particular items of equipment, and we badly needed new binoculars which are vital when we are searching wide areas at sea.
“We are delighted yet again at the generosity of the Rotarians.”
