Special Delivery for Rhyl lifeboat volunteers
Rhyl RNLI volunteers have received a donation from Romec for the upcoming raft race to be held in Rhyl Harbour.
Romec who provide a complete range of facilities management services to Royal Mail and are wholly owned by the Royal Mail Group, kindly donated the oars for this year's raft race, which are worth £311.
Rhyl Lifeboat Coxswain, Martin Jones said: ‘Last year the raft race was a fantastic event and we are looking to make this year even better. The event helps us to connect to key community partners and we would like to thank Romec for their kind donation of the oars which will be utilised by the teams on the day.’
