Rhyl RNLI volunteers were on station both days of the Rhyl Air Show, where it is estimated over 120000 attended the area to see the event. During the two days, the station raised over £3500 towards RNLI funds. During that week the station was visited by three separate groups or individuals to donate to help the station.

The first donation was from representatives of the 88th Manchester scout group. They had been given a tour of the station previously by Derek Denton, the station’s tractor driver and Lifeboat Education and Visits officer. Following the tour, the group had a sandcastle competition on the beach, and all funds raised were presented in a cheque to Derek. The photo shows Derek (left) with  the scouts’ leaders, and Coxswain Martin Jones receiving the cheque.

The second visit was on the second day of the Rhyl Air show, when 2 leaders of the Stafford and Hednesford Air Cadets Girls Venture Corps presented Derek with some lifeboat dolls which the group had knitted. This was the second year that dolls had been donated to the station, and they will be used to raise funds for the station running costs. The photo shows Derek Denton with 2 of the group.

The third visit was from five year-old Dion Bowen of Southsea Wrexham. He had sold loom band bracelets at £1 each to family, friends and relatives, and presented Derek with £40 towards Rhyl station running costs. Dion was given a personal tour of the boat by Derek. The Photo shows Derek Denton and Dion Bowen on board Rhyl’s All-weather lifeboat “Lil Cunningham”.

Derek, the station’s tour guide and Visits officer, says ” The volunteer crew at Rhyl RNLI station are extremely grateful to these people who make great efforts to support the RNLI, particularly Rhyl”. Derek can be contacted via the station email rhyl@rnli.org.uk to arrange a visit.
