Rhyl RNLi crew receive chocolate oranges from the community
Denise Dale and Linda Frier have been collecting around the local area, and asking the public, shops and businesses to donate Terry's Chocolate oranges to deliver to all emergency services who are on call over the festive period.
As part of this generous donation, they called at Rhyl RNLI station to donate a box of the tasty treats to the crew.
Despite the crew getting ready to launch the lifeboats to see the old all-weather lifeboat depart the station, the crew were more than willing to accept the gift.
The photo shows Coxswain Martin Jones with Linda and her family, together with crew Mark Waterworth (L) and Deputy Coxswain Andy Wilde (R) with the chocolate oranges.
Martin said ' We are very grateful for the donation of these chocolates to the crew, and thank Denise and Linda for working so hard to get the community to be so generous at this time of year. We will share the oranges firstly among the crew's partners and children, to say thanks to them for their support over this extremely busy year '
