Today, RNLI Coxswain Alan Owen and Station Mechanic Vince Jones were presented with a generous donation towards Moelfre Lifeboat Station, from the proceeds of the school event.

Several members of the station crew have close links with the school as they were former pupils, (including Coxswain Alan Owen and Vince Jones). Some of the children that attend the school also have parents or family members in the crew. The children of Ysgol Gymuned Moelfre often attend the Lifeboat launch at Moelfre, due to the close relationship between the school and the Lifeboat Station.

RNLI Moelfre Lifeboat Station are grateful for the support of the pupils and staff at Ysgol Gymuned Moelfre.
