Rob, son-in-law of Rhyl RNLI fundraisers chair Peter Dean, decided to support the campaign.
Rob Batterbee started running from Conwy Lifeboat Station to Rhyl Lifeboat Station on 1st May, a distance of almost 20 miles in support of this years RNLI MAYDAY campaign. This is his contribution as he felt the lifeboat fundraisers were missing so much by not being able to hold their duck race again this year!
Rob started from Conwy Lifeboat Station at 9am and passed by Llandudno Lifeboat Station at approximately 09.35am, arriving at Rhyl Lifeboat Station at 11.50am. Any support in the way of a donation to Rob's page would be greatly appreciated, The link to his Just Giving page is as follows,
Thank you if you have already supported it really is appreciated, Rob has been training hard and was determined to do us proud on Saturday, He had a welcome greeting when he arrived at Rhyl lifeboat station, by family, crew and fundraisers.
Peter dean, Rhyl RNLI fundraisers chairman says, 'We are all so proud of Rob, and thank him for his efforts to raise money for the RNLI in these trying times'.
