A combination of fundraising efforts saw a welcome donation to RNLI Moelfre

Lifeboats News Release

Regular visitors to Anglesey and RNLI supporters, Debbie and Andy Hatton, generously gave £80 to help us Save Lives at Sea. Debbie made and sold 9 of these beautiful hand-knitted toys to raise funds. They also saved 5p pieces in our famous 'Betty's 5p pots' and kindly made up the difference to £80.

RNLI/Fundraiser, Sally Roberts

Lifeboat Press Officer and shore crew member Phil Williams, was delighted to meet with Debbie and Andy to receive the donation on behalf of Moelfre Lifeboat Station. Phil said: "Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our supporters, we can continue to answer the call to those in danger at sea. Moelfre RNLI are extremely grateful for this, and every donation we receive."
