A SOUTH Lakes art group presented Bay Search and Rescue with £563, raised during an art exhibition.

Station officer Gary Parsons was given the cheque by members of Arnside Art Group, on the promenade at Arnside.

It was raised during an art exhibition earlier this year. The event was free but there was a collection for a local cause - chosen by group members each year.

The Arnside Art Group was founded in 1971, the brainchild of Lilian Eagle.
