Lifeboats News Release

The world’s leading seafood company, Mowi, has generously donated £10,000 to the RNLI in Scotland which will be split between 3 lifeboat stations on the west coast of Scotland.

RNLI lifeboat stations at Kyle of Lochalsh, Mallaig and Portree will receive a generous donation from Mowi after the company donated £10,000 to the RNLI in Scotland in recognition of the valuable service the charity provides to the public in times of need.

A presentation was held at the Kyle of Lochalsh RNLI Lifeboat Station last week with representatives from both Mowi and the RNLI in attendance.

Paul McKeown, Fundraising and Partnerships Lead at the RNLI in Scotland, says: ‘We’re incredibly grateful for this generous donation from Mowi to support three of our lifeboat stations on the west coast. Donations like these help to provide our crew with the essential kit, training and equipment needed all year round to help save lives at sea. Thank you.’
