A statement on the station’s Facebook page said: “Massive thanks to all the local shops, companies & residents who have been donating food to our crew & the other emergency services who have been on service, the support really has been appreciated

“Also thank you to the Long Beach store for supplying a gas cycinder to help keep the Lifeboat station warm.”
