Tobermory's Pier Café just across the road from the lifeboat station will be hosting fish and chip shop night from 5pm until 8pm on Saturday 21st October to raise funds for Tobermory RNLI. Chef Paul will be serving up all the trimmings, including mushy peas and his famous chip shop curry sauce. Supporters can eat in or 'carry oot' (takeaway) and if you want to wash down your haddock and chips with your favourite tipple, you can bring your own bottle.

There is no need to book your 'plaice' so don't be 'koi', come and join Tobermory's volunteer crew for a fishy feast and help save lives at sea.

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 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.
