Bosses of a Peterborough firm have teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat Institute in a bid to raise cash for the life-saving organisation.

Directors of Toolstation, in Whitehead Drovem, Fengate, hve just struck a deal with toy manufacturer Corgi to supply a range of quality models of the RNLI’s Flood Rescue Team’s vehicle and attached inflatable.

All the cash raised from the sale of the £5.49 models, which feature a Land Rover Defender and RNLI D Class lifeboat, will be donated to the RNLI’s inland Flood Rescue Team.

Robin Goodlad, RNLI Flood Response Manager, said the charity greatly appreciated the support of Toolstation.

He said: “Demand for our services continues to grow. Since our formation in 2000, we now have 250 trained team members divided into six teams positioned around the UK to respond to flooding.

“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 Flood Rescue Team.”
