Burnham RNLI has received a cheque from building firm Costain for £2,825.

The company, which is working on Hinkley Point C, used its bonus scheme to support the volunteer group.

The money will be used to cover training costs of probationary lifeboat crew member Dan Fear and trainee helmsman Nathan Meager.

Costain’s construction director Alex Smale said: “Given our activities in the local area, we made the logical choice to support Burnham RNLI.

“We are proud to be able to help fund the training and development of the volunteer crew who will continue to provide this life-saving service long after Costain has departed the area.”

Prospective supporters can visit Burnham’s lifeboat shop, in Pier Street.

Those interested in becoming a volunteer can pop into the lifeboat station after a Wednesday training session at 7pm.
