The youngsters along with their Uncle, Stephen Moran, joined hundreds of others in the annual New Years Day dip off Abersoch Main Beach. The theme this year being ‘The Roaring Twenties’ and Daisy,Thomas and Uncle Stephen certainly ‘dressed to impress’.

They were very excited to be able to hand-over their well deserved sponsorship money whilst on holiday this week to our Lifeboat Operations Manager, Andy Vowell, who thanked them on behalf of the Lifeboat Station.
