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'.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
