The Seahaven Branch of 'The Royal Society of St George' presented Seaford Lifeguards with a special gift this weekend.
The Lifeguards received lifesaving CPR equipment and a watertight container to help them continue vital work making Seaford beach safe.
Chairman of the Lifeguards, Peter Gwilliam, thanked the Society and said: "We found the need for this sort of equipment last year when we had to make a particularly difficult rescue. This will certainly enhance our ability to help in future."
The Society has previously gifted other useful items to local worthwhile causes, including the Starfish Project, an organisation helping recovering stammerers, who received a printer at the end of last year.
The donation marks the beginning of a busy year for the Seahaven Branch of the Society, which has more gifts in the pipe-line, including help with the South Heighton Jubilee celebrations and the repair of a field gun for the Newhaven Sea Cadets. The branch is also helping Seaford Town Council with plans for a Veterans and Armed Forces Day on Saturday, 30th June.
