Pebbles fundraiser for Fishguard RNLI
Two young holidaymakers helped raise funds for the RNLI recently by selling painted pebbles.
The young daughters of two families who have been holidaying for a week in Lower Town, Fishguard came up with the novel way to raise money and awareness for the RNLI.
Jemima Leatt and Esther Toward, who live in Wells and Southampton, collected pebbles, hand painted them and set up a small stall on the quay to sell them to passers-by on the quay and raised nearly £30.00

Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
