Boxing Day Dip Fundraising Boost From Barclays Bank
The money raised from the Rhyl RNLI Boxing Day Dip gained a boost this morning after Barclays Bank match fund £1000 for the event.
Mr Bruce said
"This is the second year that Barclays have been able to support the work of the RNLI in Rhyl with the Boxing Day Dip. I’m excited at the prospect of working together on future events and raising some much needed funds to support the work that you all do so diligently.
My participation has been through the links to Rhyl Rugby Club with Seth Pierce and Keith Jones and hope that in years to come the event can grow along with the financial support from Barclays".
Rhyl RNLI Fundraising Chairman, Peter Dean said "We would like to thank Liahll and Barclays Bank for their contribution to the Boxing Day Dip fund. As a charity the RNLI relies on these initiatives to continue saving lives at sea. We look forward to working with Liahll in the future."
