Weston-super-Mare’s sea angling club has made another donation to the town’s lifeboat charity.

The club has been donating to Weston RNLI for a number of years, and held a fishing competition to raise even more money.

Nigel Pepper, vice chairman of Weston Sea Angling Club, said: “As users of the marine environment we are well aware of the superb work done by the RNLI and are always happy to help.”

The club raised £1,300 from competition entry fees, and visited the RNLI volunteers to hand over a cheque this weekend.

Lifeboat operations manager Richard Spindler said: “This is a very generous amount and we are very grateful.”
