GENEROUS GHOST WALKERS

31/10/2010

Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat volunteers have had a record-breaking year at their annual Halloween Spooky Walks.

This annual event, now in its sixth year, was the most spectacular on record with a record-breaking £2,000 raised for RNLI funds and new features such as a dungeon and spooky frontage to the lifeboat station.

Nineteen spooky walks took place over three nights with over 350 people taken on a tour of Kinghorn’s dark past.

Lifeboat Operations Manager Paul Wibberley continues, “We had another very successful event with a magnificent sum of £2,000 raised. The average annual cost of running an inshore lifeboat station like Kinghorn is £90,000, so fundraising events such as the Spooky Walks are essential to raise funds.”

“It was great to see so many people attending the event, and enjoying themselves. As well as the actual walks we had activities within the station such as dooking for apples and face-painting.”

“I would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who supported us, as well as all the lifeboat crew, fundraisers and friends who helped in the preparation and running of this very successful event.”

The station would also like to thank everyone who helped with materials for the props, including JT Inglis of Dundee who provided the canvas for the front of the boathouse, Craig and Rose of Dunfermline for paint, MKM Building Supplies and Buildbase Kirkcaldy who both donated timber.

The fundraising committee are now looking forward to the Christmas Fayre which will be held in the Church Hall on Saturday 4th December.
