Ready for the off

Stuart Morrissey aka Mad Rider 1961 is well known to the RNLI. In 2005 he raised just short of £4000 for Padstow RNLI to support the new build of their lifeboat station. This time he has set off with his entourage of Paul Brady, Mike Herron and Yvonne Morrissey to visit all the South West Lifeboat stations starting from Dartmouth and finishing at Brixham on Sunday. Being keen fishermen and kayakers, they want to help raise some much needed funds for the volunteer lifeboat crews who work so hard to try to keep everyone safe.

They are carrying a bucket for anyone to donate but you can also donate on their just giving page which is
