New Fundraising Management Team - Abi, Amy & Sandra
Last year Peter and Beryl Dean decided to step down as Chair and Secretary of Rhyl Lifeboat Fundraisers after an amazing 40 years in post. Following their decision to step down, it was decided to adopt a new fundraising structure at Rhyl RNLI and a fundraising management team have been elected.

The new team consists of Sandra Hughes, a valued member of the Rhyl RNLI shop management team, and the current Rhyl RNLI events team members Amy McHarrie-McAdam and Abi Jefferson. The new team will organise a calendar of fundraising events throughout the year. We are grateful that Peter Dean as agreed to continue as Fundraising Treasurer.

Catherine Tudor Jones, RNLI Community Manager for North and Mid Wales, said:

'I'd like to thank Peter and Beryl Dean, both have played an integral part in fundraising collections, organising events and championing the RNLI's lifesaving work in the local area over many decades, it's a remarkable achievement. In Sandra, Amy and Abi we are extremely fortunate to have such hard working individuals who are willing to lead the fundraising team in Rhyl.'
