Pupils and teachers at Ysgol Glan Gele, Abergele,North Wales, were recently given a conducted tour around Rhyl RNLI lifeboat station by volunteer Lifeboat Education and Visits Officer Derek Denton. He showed the party around the lifeboats and their equipment, and gave a detailed talk on the boats and the boathouse.

As a thank you to the crews of the RNLI, and especially Rhyl volunteers, the children organised a fundraising event at the school, and raised over £181 to go towards the upkeep and maintainance of the lifeboats at Rhyl. Derek was invited to the school, and came along with volunteer crew probationer Dougie Lonsdale, to accept the cheque on behalf of the RNLI.

Derek says ” We are really grateful to the pupils and staff at Ysgol Glan Gele for their hard work to raise funds for the RNLI. As a charity, we rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, and I am glad the pupils had a good time at the station, and hopefully learned some sea safety tips”
