Weston’s RNLI crew received a welcomed reward for their hard work and effort.

Pappadoms owner Sayd Ahmed arranged for the whole lifeboat crew and their partners to have a meal at Jaan’s Indian restaurant, in Whitecross Road, as a way to say thank you for their work.

The meal, cooked jointly by Pappadoms and Jaan was described by the crew as fantastic and a good night was had by all.

Lifeboat operations manager Mike Buckland said: “This was a lovely meal thanks to Sayd’s generosity.

“He is well known for supporting what we do, donating chocolates for the crew at Christmas and prizes for our raffles.

“To give us this evening on top of all that is remarkable and very kind.

“It gives us faith that we do have the community behind us.”
