RNLI Collection Box


RNLI Collection Box
Last year our collection boxes raised £3675.53 for the RNLI in Troon and we would like to thank everyone who generously donated.

We are always pleased to hear about new locations willing to take a collection box to support the RNLI in Troon. Boxes can be supplied to shops, pubs, restaurants, bars, hotels, B&Bs - in fact anywhere where customers may be willing and able to donate a bit of loose change to help save lives at sea.

If you can help, or if you already have a box and it needs emptying or replacing, please contact the lifeboat station via 01292314414 or email with your name, location and a contact number, and we will be in touch.
