PUPILS at Ysgol Treferthyr have presented a cheque to Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat crew.

Iago Owen Gwyn, Chair of Ysgol Treferthyr’s School Council presented Peter Williams, Criccieth Lifeboat Operations Manager, with the cheque for £87.50 in front a lifeboat-themed mosaic on the school’s wall

On the morning of 25 February.

The money was raised by pupils during their annual Christmas Service.

Of the seven members of the school council, four are children of serving Lifeboat Helmsmen and Crewmembers, illustrating the close relationship between the station, school and wider community.

Members of the Lifeboat Station visit the school regularly to provide pupils with beach and sea safety information.

Following the presentation of the cheque, Peter Williams said: "The Station has always maintained a strong relationship with the staff and pupils at Ysgol Treferthyr.

"As a coastal community, it is vital we provide our young people with the necessary information to enjoy the sea safely and responsibly and who knows, maybe in a few years we’ll see one or two volunteer to become crew-members themselves."
