The Ourco charity shop has donated £1,000 to Scarborough RNLI’s Andrew McGeown Legacy Fund.

The money will be used to help fund the RNLI’s Swim Safe campaign in August.

The donation followed an appeal on Yorkshire Coast Radio by the fund’s vice-chair, Donna Loveland.

It was heard by Veronica Thorp of Ourco, which made an identical donation a year ago when the Ourco shop opened its current premises in Northway.

The photo shows Veronica with her grandsons, Max and Jacob Cappleman, Donna and Tina Boden, who chairs the fund.

Veronica said Jacob ‘volunteers’ in the shop every Wednesday.
