Rhyl RNLI volunteers receive Christmas gift.
Donation to station of Chocolate oranges brings welcome festive cheer to the lifeboat crew.
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.

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 '
