It always feels great to give, and the Silver Bay community are some of the most generous people we’ve ever had the pleasure to know. So it really does come as as no surprise that we managed to raise such an astounding amount of money this Summer – £2,000 to be precise – for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute!
Known as the RNLI for short, the charity is one that’s incredibly close to our heart. With our very own private beach, we like to make sure that we support the charity that makes water activities around the UK, and our lodge owners, safe.
Over the summer we organised a range of fundraising activities to raise this fantastic amount. These included our Busy Bayer’s bake sale, an exciting tennis tournament featuring a tuck shop ran by our Busy Bayers, and also a fantastic sand castle competition. Our Spa and Leisure complex also hosted an array of activities that allowed us to achieve such an amazing amount.
Chris Buckley, Operations Manager at Silver Bay explained that, “living and holidaying on Anglesey gives our community at Silver Bay a heightened awareness of the hard work and support of the brave RNLI volunteers. We endeavor to find fundraising opportunities to support the RNLI crews to have the best equipment possible, and this summer was the most fruitful yet!”
General Manager, Jamie Hughes, is also incredibly proud of all the people who donated. “It’s really great to see all ages join in and celebrate such a great cause – many of the owners have boats and enjoy their time at sea safe in the knowledge that the RNLI are active in the area. It’s great to give back, and I can’t wait to continue supporting the RNLI with our future fundraising activities.”
We’d like to thank everyone who donated to the cause and if you missed out, don’t worry. We’ll be hosting even more fundraising opportunities as we head through the last part of 2016.
