A legacy for late Market Deeping town and district councillor Reg Howard has been given to his favourite charity.
Coun Ray Wootten, chairman of South Kesteven District Council, along with his wife Coun Linda Wootten presented a cheque for nearly £1,350 to crewmen at Skegness Lifeboat Station in memory of Coun Howard who died after a car crash in April, aged 94.

“Coun Howard meant a great deal to us all at both the district council and Market Deeping Town Council where he served as Mayor 13 times,” Coun Wootton said.
“Raising money for the RNLI was extremely important to him as he was a young reservist in the Royal Navy from August 1939 to April 1946, stationed in South Atlantic, Sierra Leone and south east Asia.
“I am sure Coun Howard would be comforted to know that his charity efforts will go towards helping our local Lifeboat Station at Skegness.”
