The Fylde’s lifeboats have been given a cash boost.

BT has awarded the Lytham St Annes RNLI a grant of £500 to help boost its work.

The grant was through BT’s employee recognition scheme, the BT People Awards, which acknowledges BT’s volunteering champions, who give their time and skills to help others.

Mike Blackburn, BT’s regional director for the North West, said: “Many BT people throughout our region volunteer their time, expertise and enthusiasm to support their local community.

The BT People Awards are a great recognition of this commitment and a chance for BT to support local organisations, groups, clubs and charities with what are often badly needed funds.”

Out of 173 applicants for BT People Awards across the country, 22 received them.
