In memory of Dave, I want to raise money for the RNLI crew from Mersea. I also want to give money to the children’s ward in Colchester. They were absolutely amazing and looked after my family while we mourned the loss of Dave. They’ve also been absolutely wonderful with my three-year-old son,” McDonald’s wrote on their website.

The crew are “very grateful,” says Rick Boreham, an RNLI volunteer.

– The volunteer crew was really touched because a fundraiser was set up. Katie is very welcome to visit our station at any time and you will receive a warm welcome.”
