Beauty pageant winners offer their assistance to Rhyl RNLI.
Two beauty queens were passing the RNLI charity fundraising Duckboat race in Dyserth, and they stopped and got chatting to Derek Denton, Rhyl RNLI station volunteer Education and Visits officer.
A visit to the station was agreed so that the queens could discuss how they could help, and they could be informed of future events that the RNLI in Rhyl was holding, such as the raft race in Rhyl harbour on Sunday 24 July; and the Open day on Sunday 21 August. They were very keen to help in these events.
Miss Galaxy Wales, Kia Owens; and Miss Flintshire International, Rachael Tate, discussed how they could help the RNLI at some of these events in Rhyl during their year of office.
Derek says " I believe this will be a beneficial partnership between the queens and the RNLI in Rhyl, and we are very grateful for their offer to help"
