Local School raises funds for RNLI
A group of students from Ysgol Caergeiliog have raised over £450 by completing a sponsored walk.
The students, who are part of the Charity Committee at Ysgol Caergeiliog, undertook the walk last week in their onesies in not the best weather conditions! Having raised money through sponsorship, their spirits un-dampened they managed to raise more money on their coastal walk, collecting off generous passers-by.
Sion Owen, the Lifeboat Visitor Officer for Trearddur Bay Lifeboat Station said: ‘It is wonderful that children of this age are engaging with their local RNLI station and helping to raise funds to support the Lifeboat volunteers. Equally importantly they are raising awareness of the dangers of the sea which is exactly what our new community program, Respect The Water is aimed at doing.’
