Most people watched the Queens Speech on Christmas day but I bet that most didn’t spot Brownedger Paul Whiston Introducing his lifeboat crew to Her Majesty.
This is clearly a massive honour and shows the nation the respect Her Majesty has for these brave Volunteers.
Paul recently told me he originally wanted to be a farmer and some of you will remember him working with Alan Lowe and Family on the milk round. He has a successful business in St Ives now and is fully committed to the RNLI.
He and his team are currently raising funds for a new tractor unit to tow the new lifeboat out. This tractor costs over £1 Million and they are half way there with their fundraising.
So while we are enjoying our Christmas festivities spare a thought for these brave volunteers who undertake the most dangerous of services for our country, and if you can give a donation to their fund please do so
