Colwyn Bay RNLI Fundraiser retires after 30 years.
Tony Pearson, one of Colwyn Bay RNLI's fundraising stalwarts has retired after 30 years of volunteering for the lifesaving charity.
The committee he had been a part for so many years aptly chose to present Tony with his certificate and a specially engraved glass at Llandudno lifeboat station.
The committee are pictured on the stern of Llandudno's all-weather lifeboat William F Yates. The certificate was presented to Tony by Alun Pari Huws, a Deputy Launching Authority at the station with Peter Weekes, Chairman of Colwyn Bay Fundraising presenting the inscribed glass.
