Zumbathon-at-Pontions-helps-train-crew-at-Rhyl-RNLI

Byline: Lesley Wilde, whose son Andy is a volunteer Deputy coxswain at Rhyl, thought it would be a good idea to raise funds for Rhyl station, to help train the crews.

Lesley, who runs FINS swimming school at Pontins’ pool in Prestatyn, thought that a Zumbathon at the pool would help the charity towards training the lifeboat crews on station. This was organised recently, and was attended by some of the Rhyl volunteer crew ( who respectfully declined the invitation to join in! ).

Members of Lesley’s classes and their friends took part in the Zumba session, and managed to raise nearly £200 on the night, but the total is not yet in.

It costs on average nearly £1300 to train an individual crew member for a year, so Lesley’s effort will go to provide training for a crew member at Rhyl, or to fund their attendance at the RNLI’s training college in Poole, Dorset.

Lesley says ” Having a son on the crew, I am proud to support the RNLI charity, and to know my efforts will  be spent locally, really gave me an incentive to do something for the men and women of Rhyl’s lifeboats. They have been really busy with both the inshore and the all-weather lifeboat this year, so it is nice to give something back to them for their dedication and committment”.
