A dedicated RNLI fundraiser has opened a jigsaw display at Weston Museum.
John Boyne has collected hundreds of pounds for the Weston RNLI branch on the Grand Pier and has extended his activities to the museum, in Burlington Street.
John is an avid jigsaw collector and has built 223 jigsaws.
Each one has been placed and mounted in the museum to raise money for the charity.
It was opened on June 18 by deputy mayor James Clayton who made a short speech complimenting John for his dedication and the history of the RNLI.
