A YOUNGSTER travelled from Warrington to Rhyl to thank lifesavers for saving his relative.

Jayden Thompson presented a cheque of £145 to Rhyl Lifeboat volunteer Paul Noden; the boy had collected the money for the charity.

Earlier in the year his relative was safely rescued from their inflatable by the inshore lifeboat from Rhyl. They were returned to the beach unharmed to their waiting family.

Paul said: "The RNLI are extremely grateful to Jayden for this donation, and we are all glad his relative was successfully rescued. In these trying times, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, like many other charities, are struggling to raise the necessary funds to keep running".

Jayden visited the shop and the boathouse. The RNLI provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts.
