The crew are shown starting the Bank Holiday weekend off with their own twist on the “Welly” theme, and to show off the iconic Dragon bridge in the newly refurbished Rhyl Harbour. The bridge was bathed in yellow lights by the Harbour Master for the occasion.
Martin Jones, the coxswain of Rhyl lifeboat says ” We are very excited to be supporting the RNLI’s national campaign, and we have been going round various venues in the town to persuade owners to display the boxes with the iconic Yellow welly pin badges”

• In 2015 Mayday will become the RNLI’s national fundraising event. The campaign will launch on Friday 1 May, with activity running across the May Day bank holiday weekend (1–4 May 2015).

• The income target for 2015 is over £500,000 – mainly raised through street collections and other fundraising events.

• The money raised through Mayday will be used to help fund the RNLI’s lifesaving service – it could, for example, help fund crew training, buy replacement kit for the crew, or contribute towards the running costs of lifeboat stations.
