A ten-year-old boy from Cornwall can tick Wicklow off a 'to do' list he's compiled as part of an RNLI challenge.

Harry Mascall and his mum Jane paid a visit to Wicklow RNLI Lifeboat Station recently as part of his challenge to visit all RNLI stations in the UK and Ireland, to raise money for and awareness of the charity.

Harry started his mission on his seventh birthday when he visited a lifeboat station in Cornwall where he was spending his summer holidays. He now plans to complete his challenge to visit all 238 stations during school holidays.

After a tour of the two lifeboats and station, Harry was presented with some framed photos of Wicklow lifeboat by the crew to mark his 167th lifeboat station visit. To date, Harry has raised over £5,000 for the RNLI and his challenge can be followed at twitter.com/HarryMascall1 and he can be supported at justgiving.com.
