Owners Noel and Amanda, heard that the existing video camera bought by the crew, was not very efficient in low-light situations. This resulted in many minutes of footage not being used to promote the RNLI’s charitable work in rescuing people at sea and in inland flooding (such as St.Asaph and Rhyl in the last few years).

Being dedicated supporters of the RNLI, they decided to do their own fundraising, to purchase the latest GoPro Hero 4 black camera and accessories, enabling the camera to be mounted either on a crew member’s headwear, or on a fitting on the boat.

 At a recent event at the Cob & Pen, the camera was presented to Deputy second Coxswain Paul Archer-Jones. Paul said ‘ We are very grateful to Noel and Amanda for their support for the RNLI charity, and Rhyl crew in particular’

The evening also included a talk on the Rhyl RNLI station history by ex-coxswain Peter Robinson, with some footage taken  by the Rhyl RNLI and flood rescue teams, some of which have been used in national and International media coverage. This had been edited by crew member Callum Robinson.

The attached photo shows Amanda and Noel presenting the camera to Paul Archer-Jones watched by volunteer crew members of Rhyl RNLI lifeboat.
