Mrs Shelley Phillips of Pendine raised an amazing £445.00 on behalf of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in June this year by completing the National Three Peaks Challenge. She is pictured donating the money to the RNLI Lifeguards at Pendine Beach.

The National Three Peaks Challenge involves the ascent and descent of Ben Nevis in Scotland 1345m, Scafell Pike in England 978m and Snowdon in Wales 1085m all within 24 hours. Shelley and her Team achieved the goal in a time of 23hrs 27 mins on 2nd/3rd June 2018.

Shelley is passionate about the work that the RNLI do in Pembrokeshire and is very grateful for the seasonal Lifeguard service on her beach, along with the year round service that the local lifeboat stations provide. Without fundraisers such as Shelley the RNLI would not be able to continue its valiant work saving lives at sea.

Lifeguard Supervisor Oliver Davies-Scourfield said 'Our thanks go out to Shelley for completing this momentous challenge and raising such a large amount of money for the RNLI'.
