A Llandudno guest house owner has raised more than £1,000 for the RNLI.

Peter Rourke held a horse racing and raffle night which saw him raise £1,002.34 for the Llandudno RNLI.

He donated the money to the Llandudno-based charity during the half term holidays.

This capped off a busy half term period for the RNLI lifeboat station with more than 400 people visiting the boathouse and visitors’ centre across the two week period.

The half term holiday also saw educational visits taking place from Aberconwy Air Cadets and Glan Conwy Cubs and Beavers.

These visits not only allow young people to come and see the lifeboats and learn how the station operates, but also learn about the RNLI's water safety campaign - 'respect the water'.

Volunteers from the RNLI fundraising team also welcomed Ysgol John Bright students to see how donations, large and small, provide the equipment, kit and boats, enabling the Llandudno branch to exist.

The students will be now begin their own fundraising for the RNLI by arranging events back at the school.
