This generous donation was collected or raised by the staff, crew and customers of Loch Ness by Jacobite throughout the course of the year. The Loch Ness Lifeboat received a share of the proceeds of the Jacobite bonfire night and that combined with the money collected in their RNLI collection boxes, all added up to £2064.99.
Marketing and Events Manager with Loch Ness by Jacobite Kelly MacKenzie and Accounts Assistant Lauren MacKenzie were surprised and delighted by the total which was more than £382 up on last year. Lifeboat Operations Manager Joanna Stebbings presented a certificate in recognition of their valued support.
