School hold Bake Off in support of Barmouth RNLI
Year 6 children from Wodensfeld Primary School in Wolverhampton held a Bake Off cake competition at their school in May 2017 to raise funds for the RNLI.
17 children took part and the standard of entries was very high. The money raised was donated to Barmouth RNLI when they visited the station on Tuesday 13 June.
The children met members of the volunteer lifeboat crew and were shown around the Inshore and the all-weather lifeboats.
Visits Officer Eve Williams said:
‘The children were very interested to see the boats and to know how RNLI volunteers save lives at sea. They left a delightful record of their achievements for the crew to see how the money was raised.’
