Peter walks in aid of Rhyl RNLI lifeboat.
Peter McAndrew from Ruthin decided to raise funds for the volunteers at Rhyl RNLI lifeboat station
Peter and his friends and helpers travelled from his home in Ruthin to the lifeboat station, to present the Lifeboat fundraisers' chairman, Peter Dean, with an amount of cash which totalled £306.00, the result of a sponsored walk by Peter.
He was met by The chairman of the Fundraisers; also Darrel Crowther, RNLI station Operations manager, and mechanic Callum Robinson. Also present was Paul Frost, press officer, who had known Peter for many years when he walked past the boathouse on his regular outings, and always stopped for a chat.
Paul Frost said ' it was lovely to see Peter after a few years away, we recognised each other instantly! Peter is always a happy smiley person, and the station is very grateful for his wonderful effort to raise funds for the RNLI in these trying times'.
