New Funds for Largs Lifeboat Station
Largs local Co-operative Society Branch presented the local lifeboat station with a welcome gift.
The sum of money collected by the Co-op Community fund amounted to a very welcome £200.
The lifeboat fund raisers, management and crew at Largs RNLI Station wish to thank everyone who contributed to this fund.
The Year gone by, due to well known circumstances has been very difficult with more launches than usual and less money coming in, donations such as this one will go towards keeping the lifeboat afloat and her volunteer crew ready for service 24 hours a day is therefore greatly appreciated, again , Thank You.
