Lifeboats News Release

Live@Troon is an annual music festival which attracts thousands of visitors to Troon every year.


Live@Troon supports RNLI Troon Lifeboat

The event was held last weekend (Friday 7 until Sunday 9 September 2018) and featured Skerryvore, Dougie Maclean and Toploader to name but a few.

Our RNLI Fundraisers were on cloakroom duty at the main stage at Troon Concert Hall throughout the event and over the three day event an amazing total of £462.66 was donated by the patrons of Live@Troon.

We would like to thank the patrons, and the organisers of Live@Troon, for donating this money to Troon Lifeboat to help us save lives at sea.
