The crew were delighted to receive the donation which Carolyn handed over to Coxswain Vic Sutherland and Mechanic Dave Buchan just before they kitted up and left on exercise.

The cheque for £200 presented to RNLI Fraserburgh was for being a runner-up in Asda's Green Token Vote for Q2 2019.

Vic thanked Carolyn on behalf of everyone at RNLI Fraserburgh and said how much we all appreciate the contribution.

Vic said: 'Donations like these help us to save lives at sea” said Vic “and thanks to all the Asda customers who voted for us'.
