Sweet treats raise funds for Rhyl RNLI
Rhyl RNLI volunteers were presented with over £100 after a group of eight children from Sunnyvale Caravan Park held an event to raise funds for the charity.

The children (aged 6-12) organised a cake sale as well as selling key rings, books, DVDs, guess the name of the teddy and guess how many sweets are in the jar.

Andy Wilde from Rhyl Lifeboat said, ‘It's fantastic to see the kids getting involved with the RNLI, taking the time to organise this event and raise funds for the charity. We are always amazed at the generosity of the local community and further afield, who continue to support our lifesaving volunteers’.
