Models to raise RNLI cash
A SWANSEA tool company has come up with a novel way to support flood rescue teams in the city.
Toolstation has negotiated with model maker Corgi to produce a model of the RNLI Flood Rescue Team's Land Rover Defender and RNLI D Class Lifeboat.
The models are being sold for £5.49 at Toolstation's premises on Swansea's Enterprise Park with all profits going to the RNLI.
Toolstation managing director Neil Carroll said: "While of course it is vital to raise funds for the Flood Rescue Team in 2010, my big hope is that this will also help spread the awareness of their activities around the UK."
RNLI flood response manager Robin Goodland said: "We are very impressed with the Corgi model and its accuracy and detail and I am sure it will sell very well indeed which will be of great benefit to the RNLI food rescue team."
