The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea

KIRKCALDY BOAT CLUB GIFT TO LIFEBOAT

25/05/2009

The RNLI lifeboat at Kinghorn had another welcome donation to their funds recently.



The £200 donation was gifted by Kirkcaldy Boating and Sea Angling Club.



The cheque was handed over by Declan Paterson (11) who is the youngest member of the Club. He presented it to Megan Davidson (17) who is the youngest recruit to the RNLI in Kinghorn.



Brian Gorton, Treasurer of the club added, "We have decided to make a donation to the lifeboat at Kinghorn, as it is our local point of rescue and has helped out our members in the past. We have been running as a club for a long time, in fact next year is our One hundred and tenth anniversary! We have quite a good membership, ranging from young to old and there are currently 60 boats in the harbour at Kirkcaldy belonging to club members."



Charlie Tulloch, Lifeboat Operations manager (in receipt of the cheque) replied, " The RNLI are always grateful to receive funds, as being a charity, we are totally reliant on such donations from members of the public and groups such as the Boating and Sea Angling Club at Kirkcaldy, deciding that Kinghorn is a worthwhile cause. It allows us to continue our 24hr Emergency cover on the Forth and to continue to save lives. I would like to thank all in the Club for their support."
