A MAN whose life was saved by the Moelfre lifeboat crew last year has cycled 84 miles from Merseyside to the Anglesey village in order to raise funds for the RNLI.

Karl Griece was involved in a potentially life-threatening jet-ski accident last August and was rescued thanks to the fast actions of the RNLI team.

Karl cycled to Anglesey alongside a team of 15 other riders. They have raised £1,137 so far, plus an additional £4,300 through a charity night held back in February.

Karl says he owes his life to the Moelfre lifeboat station volunteers.

“I would not be here today if it was not for the brave men and women of the RNLI.” he explained.

“That is why I’m determined to raise at least £6,000 for the organisation and we’re not far off that now following this bike ride.”

On hand to greet the cyclists once they arrived in Moelfre were several volunteer crew members, who stayed on to share a cup of tea and have a chat.
