Llandudno RNLI volunteers in front of their all-weather lifeboat Andy Pearce to raise awareness for Tinnitus Awareness Week

One of the station's RNLI crew colleagues suffers from the affliction and as a result the lifeboat volunteers are only too aware of the distress the condition can cause to those affected and to their families.

As a result they were pleased to help raise awareness of the condition by assembling for the attached picture in front of their all-weather lifeboat Andy Pearce.
