Fine print of Conwy Castle goes on auction for Llandudno RNLI

THE team at Llandudno’s Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has been generously gifted a limited print of Conwy Castle and harbour, before going to auction to raise money for the organisation.

The print was designed by Newcastle-based artist Jim Edwards and was presented to volunteers at Llandudno by his friend Simon Kendall.

The print is a gift to thank all the lifeboat crews for their endeavours in the search for three fishermen, Alan Minard, Ross Ballantine and skipper Carl McGrath, who sadly died after their boat, the Nicola Faith, sank off Colwyn Bay in January.

Lifeboat press officer Jonathan Coe said: “We are so grateful to receive this superb painting which will be going to auction on November 30.

“It was so kind of Jim and Simon to think of doing this. Let’s hope it raises some valuable funds for the RNLI.”

The print can be viewed from today on, and is a coloured limited edition (22/145) surrealistic print of floodlit Conwy, mounted but unframed, signed, and measuring 42 x 42 cm.
