The party were met by the crew who were just returning from their Sunday morning exercise with the inshore lifeboat, and were given a conducted tour of the boats and equipment.
The cheque was accepted by Duty Coxswain Paul Archer-Jones, and the money will go towards the station's fundraising for a new Shannon-Class lifeboat, to arrive on station in 2019.
Paul says ' The station is very grateful to the dancing group for their kind donation. As a charity, we rely on voluntary contributions from the public, and we are very happy that the group have chosen to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, and Rhyl station in particular '
