Bikers Cove Raise over £2000 for RNLI Queensferry

Lifeboats News Release

The Bikers Cove, friends and neighbours of RNLI Queensferry Lifeboat Station, hosted a Custom Bike Show at the end of July in aid of the RNLI.

Sunday 31st July 2016 saw bikers from all over the country attending an event in South Queensferry to raise money for RNLI Queensferry. The range of motorcycles on display was fantastic, and the day was a huge success with live music and things going on to entertain the whole family.

In total the event raised £2238.07, a truly incredible amount! We at RNLI Queensferry would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at The Bikers Cove for all the hard work they put into organising the fundraiser, with special thanks going to Tricia Sutton and Chas McLeod.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
