ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH FOR A SPOOKY WALK?

16/10/2011

Kinghorn RNLI lifeboat volunteers are looking for people brave enough to join them on their annual Spooky Walks at Halloween.

This annual event is the one of the most popular events on the fundraising calendar at Kinghorn lifeboat station when everyone gets dressed-up, not in the usual drysuits and lifejackets, but as ghosts and ghouls from Kinghorn’s past.

The lifeboat crew aim to beat the grand total of £2,000 raised during last year’s walks, and to take over 350 people on a tour of Kinghorn during the three night run.

Lifeboat crewmember and spooky walk usher, Brian Paton said: “This year promises to be even better than last year; we have some of the old favourites and also several new stories, many of which are inspired by Kinghorn’s history.

“It would be great to see as many people as possible joining us on a spooky walk – it is fundraising events like this which allow the RNLI to maintain the volunteer-run service. The crew, and many others, are putting many hours into this event; over and above all the regular training and emergency call outs we attend through the year.

“There will also be activities in the boathouse including dooking for apples and face-painting, and any children who come along in fancy dress will be rewarded with free sweets!”

The spooky walks will take place on Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Saturday 29th October, starting at 7pm with tours leaving every 20 minutes from Kinghorn lifeboat station.

Tours can be booked at our new online booking page at http://bookings.kinghorn.org.uk/ or by phoning the boathouse on 01592 890663 between 6.30pm and 8.30pm on Monday 24, Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26th October, where volunteers will be taking bookings. Further details are available online.
Adults tickets cost £5 and children's tickets cost £3.50 (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult).
