New Quay RNLI Family Fun Day
On Sunday 26 May New Quay RNLI held its annual family fun open day. The day raised over £1000 which will go towards vital equipment to help the RNLI save lives at sea.
Dick Perry, New Quay RNLI’s Treasurer said, 'We would like to thank everyone who attended and helped make it a very special day. We would also like to thank all the businesses, cake bakers and the Three Sheets to the Wind singers who supported us. Without their kind donations and support this day would have not been possible.'
