A guest speaker at the celebrations was Ian Johnstone, our former Coxswain, who alongside former Scotland manager Craig Brown gave very interesting speeches.

Troon Round Table decided that all proceeds from the night would be donated to the RNLI and last week, members of Troon Round Table visited the lifeboat station to handover an impressive cheque for £471 to Troon lifeboat fundraisers.

Speaking following the handover, Troon fundraising branch treasurer Urda Cotter said: ‘Everyone at Troon lifeboat station are really grateful to be selected as the recipients for this donation from Troon Round Table. We would like to thank everyone who attended the event and Troon Round Table for this donation which will help to save lives at sea.’
