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.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
