The Grand Pier has announced its continued backing to one of Weston’s most loved charities.

Pier co-owner Michelle Michael has once again given Weston’s RNLI full support for 2018.

RNLI fundraising chairman Peter Elmont said: “The Bristol Channel is one of the most dangerous waters in the world due to its high tidal ranges and every year hundreds of tourists get caught out by the rapid rise in sea level.

“Thankfully Weston’s RNLI volunteers are on hand to quickly respond to save those in difficulty at sea.

“Funded by charitable donations, the RNLI relies on its fundraising efforts in order to continue this life-saving work.”

Ms Michael said she is ‘delighted’ to support the charity, which has raised £635,000 for its new base.

She added: “The RNLI offers an invaluable service across our coastline helping to save the lives of hundreds of people at sea.”
