A man, left clinging to his paddleboard for six hours off Marazion, pledges to raise money for the RNLI.

Joe Holtaway drifted a mile out to sea and got too cold to make it back to shore.

Lifeboats, coastguard teams and a helicopter were scrambled to find him in the pitch dark earlier this week.

His dad has described his rescuers as "amazing."

Joe, seen here in the checked shirt, has visited Penlee lifeboat station, which was involved in the massive search, along with his parents.

Joe’s Dad said: "I would like thank you all for your dedication and for the follow up support you have given to Joe and to our family - you are all amazing."

Joe and his mum already have fundraising ideas for the coming months and have pledged to raise money, which will benefit the Penlee Lifeboat and local cliff rescue teams.

RNLI Coxswain Patch Harvey said: "It was really nice to meet Joe and his parents in more amiable circumstances, and to see that he has made a full recovery. To be thanked personally is always a great morale booster for the volunteer crew and makes our job so worthwhile."
