Lostwithiel Branch of the RNLI have bestowed Life Presidencies on the outgoing Chairman Mike Harrison and his wife June, in recognition of their long and dedicated service to the Branch. They also received a Scroll of Thanks from the RNLI.
Incoming Chairman Rob Briggs, in making the presentations, paid tribute to their tireless efforts at fundraising on behalf of the RNLI. The Mayor of Lostwithiel also recognised Mike and June's contribution in a short address he gave at the Annual Dinner Dance of the Branch at the Restormel Lodge Hotel. He estimated that the branch had raised nearly £100,000 during Mike and June's time on the committee.
The dinner dance was very successful despite slightly reduced numbers and the dancing continued until midnight.
