The Lizard Lifeboat


We were very pleased to welcome Paul Hucklebridge who visited the station to pass on a donation in memory of his friend and colleague, Matt Smith.   

Almost exactly one year ago Matt and his daughter Bonnie,  tragically lost their lives in Mullion Cove during a winter storm.  Although today was a sad occasion, Paul wanted to mark this, the first anniversary of the tragedy, by visiting The Lizard Lifeboat Station and also our colleagues at Penlee Lifeboat Station. Both Lifeboats were launched on service that night.  

Paul is seen handing the donation to Coxswain Dan Atkinson and Mechanic Ed Leckie.  We thank Paul most sincerely for a very generous, kind and thoughtful donation.
