Llandudno RNLI crew help highlight Tinnitus Awareness Week
Llandudno RNLI's volunteer lifeboat crew took a break from their weekly training session to help publicise the British Tinnitus Association's 'Tinnitus Awareness Week'.
One of the station's RNLI crew colleagues suffers from the affliction and as a result the lifeboat volunteers are only too aware of the distress the condition can cause to those affected and to their families.
As a result they were pleased to help raise awareness of the condition by assembling for the attached picture in front of their all-weather lifeboat Andy Pearce.
