Beaumaris Lifeboat crew members participate in the Anglesey Half Marathon.
The two crew members of the Beaumaris Lifeboat who had entered for the event namely Mrs Lucy Aspden Zalot and Mr Connor McCarron successfully completed the event today..
The R N L I at Beaumaris manned the refreshment station by the Lifeboat Station during the half marathon.
However we do have to admit some favouritism and both Lucy and Connor received an extra special cheer from the crew when they passed the nine mile drink station.
Lucy & Connor would particularly like to thank everyone for the sponsorship and also to everyone coming out on such a wet day and cheering it really does keep you going and makes a huge difference to all the runners.

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
