The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



The RNLI Fundraising Committee in Kinghorn is on-track to have another record breaking year.

Committee member, Elinor Chalmers said, "Last year, despite the Credit Crunch hitting residents of Fife just as hard as anywhere else, Fifers have shown that they still value the RNLI and are willing to dig deep into their pockets to assist at fundraising events and with donations. As a result, we have managed to break all previous records and an amazing £38500 was raised for the charity!"

She continued, "Donations were by and far the biggest income, but local fundraising efforts such as the Annual Open Day raised well over £3000 alone, there was even more interest in the lifeboat shop which sells RNLI goods and gifts to the public and the Spooky Walk continues to wow the public and raise funds. The committee members have worked their socks off and it shows. This year looks to be on-track yet again and our first fundraiser, a Pancake Tea, was held last Saturday (14/03/2009) and raised £640, helped of course by the upgraded modern catering facilities in the Church Hall."

" I would like to pass on the heartfelt thanks of all the committee and crew to everyone who has donated, for their overwhelming generosity during such difficult financial times. It is amazing that we can keep this emergency service running year after year on charity from the public alone. Thankyou!"

This years Open Day will be held on the 11th July.
