Wicklow RNLI receives donation from young RNLI Storm Force member
Wicklow RNLI were delighted to welcome Jordann Wizowski and his mother Megan to Wicklow lifeboat station for a very special presentation.
Five year old Jordann completed a walk between the present Wicklow RNLI lifeboat station and the former station on the Murrough as part of the RNLI Mayday mile challenge and raised €250 from family and friends in the process.
Jordann who is a RNLI Storm Force member presented the cheque to Santiago Balbontin from the Wicklow RNLI Fundraising branch, and was delighted some of the volunteer crew gathered for a photograph.
