The funds were raised by Criccieth Lifeboats’ Crew during a recent charity carwash which was held at Porthmadog Fire Station. The Crew decided to donate the proceeds towards Pwllheli’s appeal for funds for their new Shannon-class Lifeboat and boathouse in recognition of the close working relationship between the two Stations.

Following the presentation, Criccieth’s Lifeboat Operations Manager, Will Walker-Jones stated ‘as a Station we wanted to recognise the close relationship between both Stations and help with their appeal for a new lifeboat and boathouse. We look forward to visiting the new boathouse and undertaking joint exercises next year’.
