Goldwings light up to support Llandudno Lifeboat
Britain's finest Honda Goldwings, the worlds top touring motorbikes, were on display again in Llandudno this weekend.
The Goldwing Light Parade is one of the UK’s most exciting charity events which took place along the Llandudno sea front and promenade in front of thousands of visitors to the town.
The annual event has successfully raised thousands of pounds for the Llandudno RNLI, Blood Bikes and the Lions Charities. Volunteers from the Llandudno Lifeboat were delighted to be able to support the parade this year, with the inshore lifeboat going on exercise to please the visitors who had arrived to see the two hundred and thirty-nine Honda Goldwings on display.
Dave Crowley, Secretary of the Light Parade committee commented on how important the event is to help maintain the RNLI's valuable work in Llandudno. He also explained that after this year’s eighth parade, a figure of over £30,000 would have been raised for local charities.
