Fanny Charles, who presented a cheque to Lyme Regis lifeboat station’s deputy launching authority Ken Lavery, said: “The lifeboat volunteers do a fantastic job and we wanted to be certain our donation went to this particular group of people based in Lyme Regis.”

‘Deepest Dorset’ covers wide-ranging subjects including landscape, and literature, food, farming and fossils, architecture, the arts  and the oil industry and is published by Deepest Books, price £20.
