RNLI Portishead

Life-savers in Portishead were given a helping hand around their base thanks to charitable bank staff.

Lloyds Banking Group employees visited RNLI Portishead’s lifeboat station to take part in a tidy-up event.

The station houses all the volunteers’ equipment, clothes, belongings and of course the RNLI’s lifeboat.

It means it is imperative the centre is kept tidy so they can react quickly to any emergency call-outs.

A spokesman for the RNLI said the charity was extremely grateful for Lloyds’ work.

They added: “Big thanks go to the Lloyds Banking Group who came along to help us with a deep clean of the lifeboat station on one of its volunteering days.

“It looks sparkling clean everyone thank you so much for your support, it means a lot to the volunteers.”
