Darrel attended the function at the invite of Brother John Richardson of the Eccles Provincial Lodge, to receive a cheque for £2650 from the lodge, towards the upkeep of the lifeboat station at Rhyl. He was also presented with a framed montage of RNLI pictures, donated to the station in memory of Bro. Malcolm Edwards.

Mr. Richardson says “Malcolm was a member of the R.A.O.B. During his time in the R.A.O.B he was very good at helping with organising, and donating to, our charities. He was in the order for 2 years and in that time he worked very hard with us. He would do anything for anybody, nothing was too much trouble, and he gave up a lot of his spare time to help with our charities. This is the reason we made the presentation in honour of of such a worthy brother and a great member of our organisation. For this we will always remember Brother Malcolm Edwards.
I presented the picture to the R.N.L.I. in memory of Malcolm so that he will be remembered for all the work he did for others and for the organisation of R.A.O.B.
The cash was raised by myself with the help of the secretary Brother Jim Whitehead and the members of the lodge over three charity events”.  The picture will be placed in the lifeboat station’s committe room.

Darrel gave a short talk on the RNLI and Rhyl station in particular, stating the crew are valued members of the community, and enjoy giving something back to the town of Rhyl. The money will be used to maintain the station and pay towards the costs of keeping the lifeboats at Rhyl fuelled and ready for service. As a Thank-you in return,  Darrel presented the lodge with a framed picture of the All-Weather Mersey class lifeboat “Lil Cunningham”.

The attached pictures were taken at the event by one of the lodge members, and are given with permission to publish free of charge.
