Sandown and Shanklin Inshore Lifeboat, one of the Isle of Wight charities to benefit from the Lloyds community fund.
BANK customers have ensured a cash boost for charities on the Isle of Wight.
Lloyds customers have been voting online and in their branches for which causes they thought should benefit from its community fund.
Four charities were involved in the voting, with £3,000 going to the two that attracted the most votes and £300 each for the other two.
Sandown and Shanklin Inshore Lifeboat finished top of the poll, with St Catherines in second place. Ryde Inshore Rescue and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice will receive the smaller donations.
The independent lifeboat is to spend the cash on new specialist search and rescue life jackets for its crew.
Operations manager Mark Birch thanked supporters and said: "To have people go out and vote for us like this gives us a real sense of achievement and that we must be doing something right."
St Catherines marketing manager Susan Graves said: "We were delighted to receive this money from Lloyds to help us extend our work.
"All of the charities are very deserving and it was great to get this support."
