Moira and Denise present Vic with Cheque from Wedding Exhibition

Moira had organised a very successful Wedding Exhibition at the Ban-Car Hotel in early September with over £3,000 raised for local charities.

The two ladies have been busy handing over cheques to a number of local charities including Fraserburgh RNLI.

The sum had been raised from admission fees, stall holders payments, raffles and a whisky barrel

“Both our husbands were fishermen so we know how important a role the lifeboat plays in our community,” said Denise.

“It’s a tremendous amount that the ladies have raised which will benefit a number of local charities,” said Vic “including ourselves, the RNLI, the charity which saves lives at sea. It will help us to continue our work. On behalf of everyone at the Fraserburgh Lifeboat Station we’d like to thank Moira and Denise for their hard work and of course everyone who contributed. Its very much appreciated.”

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.
