RNLI fundraisers at Morrisons Troon
In August, to assist with our fundraising, Morrisons allowed our RNLI fundraising team to place collection boxes at their checkouts after our original collection date was cancelled earlier in the year. Thanks to the generosity of customers £181 was raised for the RNLI in Troon.

Urda Cotter, Treasurer of Troon lifeboat fundraising team said, “Thanks once again to the staff and customers at Morrisons for supporting the RNLI in Troon. Due to the cancellation of our regular fundraising events all donations to the RNLI are now more important than ever.”
