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.”
