Olympic silver medalist and sailor Hannah Mills has launched an appeal today for a new lifeboat at Penarth Marina - the busiest inshore station in Wales.
Hannah won silver at the 2012 London Olympics and is a gold hopeful for next month's games in Rio. She flies out this Sunday. She said her local lifeboat station "needs the best equipment possible" to help people caught in the treacherous waters off the Penarth coast.
The RNLI need to raise £52,000 for a new lifeboat. Anyone wishing to donate can visit penarthlifeboatappeal.org.
