Around 56 shops and businesses around Penarth will each have a numbered yellow welly in their window. To take part, searchers will need to find each welly to match up the numbers and the shops on the entry form.

£2 entry forms are available from the RNLI Shop on Penarth Seafront, and Umpa Lumpa Sweet Shop in Windsor arcade. The Treasure Hunt will run until Wednesday 1 September 2021, and winners will be announced on Sunday 5 September at 3pm.

There are a variety of prizes up for grabs for the winners of the hunt. All money raised from the competition will go to RNLI Penarth.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service, and volunteers make up 95 per cent of the charity. Since its founding RNLI lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives.

Caroline Eva, Chair of Penarth RNLI Fundraising Committee, said:

“It’s great to have the Yellow Welly Treasure Hunt back this year during the school holidays. It’s a brilliant way to explore the town and possibly win some great prizes, all while raising vital funds for RNLI Penarth.

“We’re really grateful for the support from Penarth’s businesses and from everyone taking part in the treasure hunt.”
