EXMOUTH RNLI received a cheque for �2,000 from the Exeter Province of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB).

The charitable group was shown around the all-weather lifeboat by deputy coxswain Giles White, who thanked members for the donation.

RAOB secretary David Moore said the group had requested the money was spent locally.

He said: "We chose Exmouth RNLI because they were having a new station and we thought that a little extra would help with other purchase of equipment they might need."
