Donaghadee lifeboat station was delighted this morning (Thurs 7th) to welcome the RNLI Chief Executive Paul Boissier who was on a two day visit to the Northern Ireland Division.
Operational and fund raising volunteers crowded into the station to meet Paul who thanked them for coming out so early on a cold and wet morning. While sitting enjoying the hospitality of the station he listened to the views of both crew and fundraisers on a wide range of topics.
He said he was delighted to be in such a beautiful part of Northern Ireland and could not help but be impressed with the enthusiasm of all the volunteers.
He praised and thanked them for their commitment to the RNLI while remembering the support from the local community. He went on to say that the commitment of the operational volunteers supported by all at the station made the sea around the local coastline that much safer for every one.
