On Friday the 10th of May volunteer Crewmembers from Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat Station visited colleagues at Pwllheli’s RNLI Lifeboat Station with a donation of £340 towards their Shannon-class Lifeboat appeal.
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’.
