Barrow RNLI have received a large donation from members of the Furness Amateur Radio Society
The Furness Amateur Radio Society members hold an annual fundraising event on behalf of Barrow RNLI lifeboat station. They attend the lifeboat station for two weekends in the spring of the year and are allowed to set up their equipment and transmit to other enthusiasts.
This year they had contacts not only in the United Kingdom and Southern Ireland but also across Europe. Each contact they make pledges to donate a certain amount of cash towards their fundraising venture.
Earlier this year members of FARS attended the lifeboat station and on their behalf, Dick Smith and Les Bell made a presentation of a cheque for £550 to members of the crew aboard Barrow’s ‘ RNLB Grace Dixon’.
