Business owners Carron Wright, The Little Tea Rooms and Lisa Griffiths, Mickeys Boatyard, wanted to help after hearing that the Abersoch RNLI Annual New Years Day Dip for January 2021 had been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Knowing how big the event always is in the village, with hundreds of RNLI supporters taking part in the dip or watching from the beach, they decided to each make a generous donation in support of the lifeboat station.

Abersoch RNLI Chairman, Phill Brown, said ‘Following on from the wholehearted support previously given to Abersoch RNLI by Mickey’s Boatyard, it is most welcome to now receive support from The Little Tea Rooms too and we thank both of these local businesses for their generous donation.’ He further added, ‘With the New Year’s Day Dip being cancelled such donations are really important to our fundraising.’

Carron and Lisa presented the donations to Phill outside the lifeboat station in accordance with Government guidelines.
