Two young girls, Olivia (7) and Charlotte (4) from Lymm, Warrington have spent their summer holidays making Loom bands to raise money for Trearddur Bay Lifeboat Station.

Both girls decided they wanted to donate to the station as their grandad, John England, was part of the lifeboat crew before the family moved to Lymm and they ‘often go on holiday to Anglesey so know all the good work that they do there and the lives saved.’

The girls set up a stall outside their house selling loom bands of all different colours and sizes and fresh rhubarb from their garden for 50p each during the school holidays and also sold 'made to order' bands on a camping trip. In total the girls raised just over £75 which they brought to the station on their recent visit.

Lifeboat Operations Manager Paul Moffett said, ‘It was wonderful to meet two such young Lifeboat enthusiasts who have worked hard throughout their summer holidays just to raise money for our station. Every penny we get helps towards kit and training for our crew so I’d like to say a personal massive thank you to them for their efforts!’
