Brownies deliver 'goodies' for lifeboat crew
Brownies from the 1st Glan Conwy pack visited Llandudno lifeboat station to present a large box of chocolates, sweets and other 'goodies' to RNLI crew members who were on call during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
When earlier thinking about the emergency services who are on duty at this time the girls had decided to put goody boxes together to deliver to their local police, fire, ambulance and lifeboat crews.
RNLI spokesman said:
'It really was kind of the girls to remember the emergency services in this way. It was a pleasure to welcome them to the lifeboat station, and the 'goodies' were greatly appreciated by our volunteer crews'
Brown Owl and her Brownies are pictured on board Llandudno's lifeboat 'Andy Pearce' with RNLI crew members Les Jones and Luke Heritage.
