Young Farmers present New Quay RNLI with a donation
Recently, Mydroilyn Young Farmers Club visited New Quay Lifeboat Station to present a cheque for £600, which they raised during their annual carol singing.
Huw Williams, one of New Quay RNLI’s volunteer coxswains said, “We would like to give a big thank you to Mydroilyn Young Farmers Club for raising money for New Quay RNLI. The donation means we can continue to save lives at sea.
“It was also a pleasure to show them around the station and lifeboats and talk to them about the RNLI's work. I think they enjoyed looking at our tractors, a bit different to the ones they are used to.”
