RNLI FUNDRAISERS FRAMED!

The RNLI fundraisers at Kinghorn look set to be Framed....

Crew member Judith Frame, one of the tractor operators, who regularly launches the lifeboat at Kinghorn, and who raised £1600 last year by swimming to Kinghorn from Inchkeith Island in the middle of the Forth , has set her sights on raising yet more funds, this time by running in the gruelling 13.1 mile (21 Kilometre) Great North Run on the 30th September, in Newcastle. Judith, 42 and a mother of three, lives and works in the village and has again joined the small band of fundraisers who work tirelessly to raise funds for the RNLI.

Judith said, " Its the world's biggest half marathon, a point-to-point course that starts in Newcastle and finishes in South Shields. I will be joining 52,000 people like Paula Radcliffe and England Coach Steve McLaren, although Paula should finish a few yards in front of me, so I will have to watch where I put my feet! I have been training very hard to get myself fit enough, but finding the time is the hardest part."

Judith will run the race strapped to a small inflatable lifeboat and hopes that this will bring in a few donations for the charity.

She continued," I have been around the pubs in the village and have raised quite a bit, but I am hoping to raise a lot more, so have opened a Just Giving website where donations can be made online, it is www.justgiving.com/judithhailstoneframe. If anyone would like to send any cheques they can post them to the RNLI Kinghorn Lifeboat, 30 St James Place Kinghorn, KY3 9RJ, or if you are passing by the boathouse any Sunday morning feel free to drop in, you can donate to the crew and be shown around the boat and boathouse at the same time."

The RNLI lifeboat at Kinghorn carries out rescues from Dalgety Bay to Elie on the Fife coast of the Forth and from Granton to Aberlady on the Lothians coastline.
