Inspiring fundraisers return to Llandudno in their Porsche 911
In 2018 Belinda and James Richardson embarked on an extraordinary challenge of visiting lifeboat stations around the entire British Coastline, including Llandudno, raising an impressive £16,500 for the RNLI.
Belinda and James have been inspired to continue their fundraising adventure with plans to visit locations in Scotland during 2019, Ireland in 2020 as well as a plan in the pipeline to visit every place in the shipping forecast a year later.
On Sunday 19 May, the couple called into the Llandudno Boathouse during the Porsche Rally taking place on the promenade to lend their support to the current RNLI Mayday fundraising events.
'It is great to re visit Llandudno and share our ambition that over the next few years we will raise enough money to buy the RNLI a D Class inshore lifeboat.'
Llandudno Press Officer Jonathan Coe said:
'We really appreciated Belinda and James calling in to see us during our fundraising event, we are all hugely impressed with their passionate support for the RNLI and look forward to hearing about their endeavours over the next few years.'
