Six ladies run in December to raise funds for the RNLI

On a very cold, wet and windy December Sunday Morning Zoe and her friends undertook the challenge, the six ladies faced dreadful weather conditions as they bravely battled against the elements ending their run at the lifeboat station.

Zoe had also created a link to her funding page, which, along with the proceeds from the run itself amounted to the magnificent sum of £635

Station Officials, crew, and fundraisers wish to thank Zoe and her brave friends for such a worthwhile and sterling effort very well done.

Grateful thanks are also extended to the supporters, families and everyone who took part in making this event so successful.

Without such support the raising of vital funds which keep our lifeboats afloat and our volunteer crews trained, properly kitted out and ready to put sea at any time of the day or night would not be possible, your input is greatly appreciated.

Thank You from us all here in Largs .
