Conwy-and-Llandudno-RNLI-lifeboats-receive-generous-donation-from-local-church

Byline: Conwy and Llandudno RNLI lifeboats were the recipients of a generous donation worth more than £1500 this weekend. The money, which has been split equally between the stations, has been raised as part of the i61 Church’s ‘£10 challenge’.

The challenge is an annual 6 week long fundraising campaign which aims to raise significant money for 10 nominated local charities and is currently in its third year. Members of the church and the local community were given £10 each at the launch event in September and the challenge was to use the £10 and raise as much money as possible. The two RNLI lifeboat stations were nominated by a local councillor to become one of the community charities/organisations to benefit from funds raised.

This year’s challenge was concluded in a final event on Sunday 29th November at a local cinema where the church meets every week. The final fundraising figure revealed this year was £15,584.61 which has been split. Representatives for the RNLI were present (pictured) to receive cheques for the stations and thank the congregation for their magnificent efforts. 

The RNLI is independent of HM Coastguard and government and therefore, depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Both stations are very grateful of this donation and would like to thank i61 church and the local community, which included a vast majority of school children, for their efforts.
