Filey RNLI officially launch new lifeboat paid for entirely by supporter who left money in her will

The late Mrs Shepherd, of Stamford Bridge near York, left enough money in her legacy to entirely fund a new Atlantic 85 lifeboat for Filey’ s RNLI station. The new vessel, which arrived last week, has now been named in honour of the crew’s late supporter, who also left gifts to other charitable causes in her will. The new craft replaces the slower Mersey class boat which left Filey in April, having served the town since 1991. >click to read< 07:58
