Carrybridge and Enniskillen RNLI receive donation from CrossFit Enniskillen
We were delighted to receive a donation of £1625 from CrossFit following an 8th Anniversary Charity Workout at their gym in Enniskillen.
Over 60 members took part at the event on Saturday 4 February, including one of the Carrybridge crew, Garvan Duffy, in a challenging team workout that took over three hours to complete. The workouts included completing two marathons on the exercise bikes and one marathon on the rowing machines.
The cheque was presented to Peter Scott (centre) from the Lough Erne Fundraising Branch for the Carrybridge and Enniskillen RNLI stations. Also included in the picture are Stephen Scott, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Carrybridge, Gary Wilson, owner of CrossFit Enniskillen, Garvan Duffy, Carrybridge RNLI crew and Paul Keown, Enniskillen RNLI crew.
Stephen Scott, Lifeboat Operations Manager, at Carrybridge RNLI praised all those who took part in the workouts for all their hard work and dedication raising money for both lifeboat stations on Lough Erne. “The funds raised are vital to the continuing work of the RNLI on Lough Erne, both at our Carrybridge and Enniskillen stations, and will assist with future life saving operations. It was great to see the gym packed with people keen to see the work of the lifeboats on Lough Erne go from strength to strength.”
