Rhyl RNLI shop volunteers receive welcome donation
Jayden Thompson from Warrington, visited the station on 19 July 2021 to deliver a cheque for the station
Jayden went to the RNLI lifeboat shop alongside the boathouse, and presented volunteer Paul Noden with a cheque for £145.00, which he had collected for the charity at his home in Warrington.
Paul says ' The RNLI are extremely grateful to Jayden for this donation, and we are all glad his relative was successfully rescued. In these trying times, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, like many other charities, are struggling to raise the necessary funds to keep running'.
