Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozney joined supporters of Peel RNLI for its annual Service of Thanksgiving on Sunday.

The ecumenical service at Peel Cathedral was led by its Dean the Very Reverend Nigel Godfrey with contributions from Reverend Andy Fishburne of the Methodist Church and Reverend Father Brian O’Mahony, the Roman Catholic priest for Peel and Ramsey.

Chairman of the Peel Station Branch, Stuart Blackley, whose great, great grandfather was a RNLI volunteer at a time when rescue vessels were still rowed, thanked the Lieutenant Governor and all those who attended for their vital support.

In his remarks, Stuart looked to the future of the Peel Station with great anticipation, acknowledging that 2020 would see the arrival of a new Shannon class lifeboat, the latest, most agile and manoeuvrable vessel in the RNLI fleet.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution was founded in 1824 by Sir William Hillary, a resident of the Isle of Man. Today, the charity has volunteers all around the British Isles and Ireland in more than 238 lifeboat stations.
