Runners at Llandudno Lifeboat Station for the Mayday Mile Campaign
Members of the North Wales Running Club gathered at Llandudno Lifeboat Station on Sunday morning to take part in the one-mile dash for the RNLI, and to present Captain Marcus Elliott, Lifeboat Operations Manager with a cheque for the funds they had raised.
The Mayday Mile fundraising campaign has encouraged members of the public to complete a one-mile distance fundraiser to help raise vital funds which will then help RNLI lifesavers to continue running the service and rescue others.
Sue Perkins, Chairperson of the Llandudno Lifeboat fundraisers said, ‘Marcus and I were delighted to receive a cheque from the running club on behalf of the RNLI. We greatly appreciate their fantastic support for the Mayday Campaign’.
