The-new-Moelfre-RNLI-lifeboat-station-benefits-from-a-generous-cheque-donation

Byline: The Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station £100,000 appeal was recently given a massive boost from a £666 cheque donation
Page Content: The kind donation was presented to Moelfre RNLI lifeboat operations manager Rod Pace from the local Wylfa nuclear power station employee Mrs Elena Thomas. Elena is a member of the ‘Wylfa 21 club’ which runs a weekly lottery with the monies deducted from members salaries. The prize money is split 50/50 to prizes and various charities. To date it has raised over £176,000 for local charities, and this year 30 individual charities have each received £666.

Mrs Elena Thomas said:

“I have always supported the RNLI as the seas around Anglesey can be very dangerous. My husband is from Moelfre and I grew up near the beach in Llanddona. We now live in Bull Bay so the sea has been a big part our lives as a family, we know how dangerous the sea can be and how it can change from calm to stormy in a matter of hours.
We have huge admiration for the army of volunteers who turn out in all weathers risking their lives to save others and I think the RNLI is a worthwhile charity which I will continue to support.”  
 
Moelfre RNLI lifeboat operations manager Rod Pace said:

“We are extremely grateful to Elena for this kind donation which will go towards the cost of the new Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station. It’s fantastic to see the local nuclear power station supporting the local Moelfre RNLI lifeboat and other charities. As a charity the RNLI relies on kind donations to raise the vital fund which allows us to continue saving lives at sea. It’s been a busy year so far for the Moelfre RNLI lifeboat volunteer crew; we have already dealt with twenty emergency calls, which is above average for this time of the year”.

 The Moelfre RNLI lifeboat station appeal, named ‘Ty i’r Tamar’ was officially launched in October to raise £100,000 towards the mechanics workshop. The station building work is progressing well as is on schedule.

Ends.
