Shell Island campsite donates £250 to Criccieth RNLI Lifeboats
On the afternoon of Friday 16th, December 2016, Mr. Richard Workman of Shell Island Campsite visited Criccieth RNLI Lifeboat Station to present a cheque for £250.00.
Shell Island Campsite at Mochras is one of Wales' busiest campsites and is situated across the bay from Criccieth. It represents the southernmost point of Criccieth RNLI Lifeboats' normal area of operation.
Both of Criccieth's Lifeboat have attended many calls near the site over the past few years. The donation was recognition of the Lifeboats' services attended during 2016 by Criccieth RNLI.
After the presentation, Criccieth's Lifeboat Operations Manager, Peter Williams commented 'I'd like to thank Richard and his colleagues at Shell Island for their generous gift. Thankfully, those employed at the campsite have a good understanding of our Station's capabilities and will call for our assistance when required'.
