A supporter of Exmouth RNLI Lifeboat station generously donated the large sum to the charity in celebration of her 90th birthday.
Avid supporters Myrt Clark and her nephew Geoff Searle were given a special tour of the Lifeboat station and its two lifeboats in appreciation on August 3.
Myrt donated money on her 80th birthday to the charity, which paid for crockery and cutlery for the crew, shortly after the new station had been built.
Geoff said: 'My aunt has lived in Crediton all her life and loves Exmouth.
"She has never been to sea but has always admired the RNIL and has donated for many years.
"She didn't want anything big for her 90th birthday so we decided to donate to Exmouth Lifeboat for her, which she was thrilled with.
"We were pleased to donate £500 towards the cost of Exmouth crew training."
