‘When my father died, they lowered the flag to half-mast’

Episode 36 – 200 Voices Interviews: Ruth Jones

Gavin & Stacey’s Ruth Jones gives a shout-out to RNLI stations at Barry, Porthcawl and Lochinver.

Welsh actress and writer Ruth Jones grew up with the sea on her doorstep. Raised in Porthcawl, where her family still live, Ruth shares her personal connection with the RNLI and its place at the heart of the coastal communities she knows and loves.

It’s a connection she feels deeply – members of her family are crew and when her father died, the RNLI lowered their flag to half-mast. Hear how Ruth showed her support for the RNLI by putting on a special fundraising event, with a surprise in store.
