Annual Open Garden event at Llandudno

During the afternoon thanks to generous donations of the public, over £320 was raised for the RNLI.

The Llandudno Fundraising Team who helped organise this event were on hand to provide coffee and tea and a fantastic range of cakes, many of which were kindly donated by the Loaf Café Llandudno.

Sue Perkins the chairperson of the fundraising team said; 'This is such a lovely event, and it is very kind of Marcus and Debbie Elliott to share their garden with us all. It is also lovely to have the support of lots of local people as well as our visitors. We were particularly pleased to welcome Janet Finch-Saunders, Member of the Senedd for the Aberconwy constituency.’
