Busy Weekend for Fundraisers at Stonehaven RNLI

Lifeboats News Release

May weekend was a very busy time for our fundraisers.

Day time on Friday 6 May saw our ladies in Asda collecting and selling Yellow Welly Pin Badges.  In the evening they held a Cheese and Wine event with local entertainer Ray Moore singing 'Songs from the Sea'.  This was held in Stonehaven British Legion. Ray Moore was excellent and a great night was had by all.

On Sunday 8 May the Annual Welly Walk took place from the RNLI boat house at the Harbour in Stonehaven, to Cowie, along the boardwalk and back.  The weather was very favourable for us and a big well done to all who took part. All in all a good weekend all round. The fantastic total amount raised for the weekend was £1746.78

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.
