A PORTISHEAD businessman visited old ground when he handed over a print donation to the Portishead and Bristol Lifeboat Trust.

Mike Povey, from design, print and mailing company Burleigh Portishead, visited the lifeboat station to hand over programmes which the company had printed free for a charity event.

Mike, who was an original crew member of the Portishead Sailing Club safety boat, the forerunner of the lifeboat, said: “Once the staff at Burleigh Portishead found out about my connections with the lifeboat, they were delighted to have the opportunity to show their appreciation of the great service it provides.”
