Supt Claire said  “It was an incredible and awesome experience to be able to represent the Fishermen’s Mission in such high profile company. There were hundreds of people.  It was a very emotional day for many as the community have been fund raising for 12 months since being closed down by the RNLI. It is testament to an amazing community of united and determined individuals. ”
