Lifeboats News Release

It was fun in the bank holiday Monday sun at the Largs RNLI Toddle Waddle.

At the start of the Toddle

Crew, fundraisers and supporters all pulled on their wellies to join in with the Largs RNLI Toddle Waddle on Monday 29 May 2023.

It was a fantastic turnout for the toddle which started at the Fishworks on the Prom, with the participants waddling along to the finish line at the lifeboat station. Future crew members of all ages pulled on their wellies and found items of ‘Crew Kit’ to find the hidden message along the route.

RNLI yellow wellies and a lifejacket were among the items which were hidden along the prom. The young supporters could then use the attached stampers to collect the letters of the hidden message.

RNLI’s very own Stormy Stan joined in with the fun and it was lovely to see so many flags waving and big smiles as everyone toddled along the route.

Those who successfully completed the toddle and solved the puzzle received a medal and some treats on arrival at the boathouse. Thanks go to Ross and Tiffany, from the Fishworks and Beachcombers, who kindly donated an icecream to everyone who took part in the event, which were very much enjoyed on such a lovely day.

Largs RNLI would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in this event and to our wonderful Fundraising Team, especially Zoe, who was in charge organising our Toddle Waddle.

As a charity we rely on fundraising and donations to allow us to continue to save lives at sea.
