Criccieth RNLI gifted with lifesaving equipment in memory of loving son
On the evening of June the 13th, 2019 volunteer Crew Members from Criccieth's RNLI Lifeboat Station gratefully received a donation of equipment from a family who holiday locally in the memory of their loving son.
Colin and Ann Marie Hornsby, who live in Manchester, presented the Crew with a CCTV system, weather station and VHF scanner for use at the Lifeboat Station. Their son, Colin Hornsby Jr., known affectionately as 'Codge' enjoyed holidaying near Criccieth with his parents and sisters, Becky and Emily.
The funds used to purchase the equipment were raised by his friends and family.
Following the presentation, Criccieth's Lifeboat Operations Manager Will Walker-Jones thanked the family. 'The Hornsby family's donations are very gratefully received by all at the Station. The equipment will be appreciated, whilst assisting in our mission of saving lives at sea'.
