Rhyl RNLI coxswain Martin Jones accepts two donations
The donations were from Jack Clews, son of crew member Harry, for a sponsored bike ride he undertook from Rhyl to Llandudno lifeboat stations, and also from a local brownies group, with Harry's mum as a leader.
Coxswain Martin Jones received a cheque for both these amounts at the Brownies headquarters in Rhyl.
He said: 'It is wonderful to see young people supporting the work our volunteers carry out to save lives at sea. I am very grateful to the brownies and to Jack, who I am sure will join our ranks when he is able to.'
