Two brothers raise over £100.00 for Abersoch RNLI
The two brothers, Freddie and Harry Kenyon, gave up their free time whilst on holiday to raise much needed funds for the volunteer crew.
They set up stall at Machroes Beach asking for donations for good-as-new water sports equipment all in aid of Abersoch RNLI.
They arranged to visit the lifeboat station on Thursday evening and volunteer crew member, Enlli Williams, gratefully accepted the generous sum on behalf of the lifeboat station.
