The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat Fundraising Branch are preparing for their first fundraising event of 2012. Songs on Saturday will be held on Saturday 28th January 2012.

This event will be held in Kinghorn Church Hall, and will feature local band Civil Folk. There will be a warming lunch of soup and sandwiches served, which is included in the ticket price.

This event is part of the RNLI’s national SOS day where people are challenged to hold a fundraising event with a SOS theme.

Kinghorn fundraising committee chairperson, Sheona Baxter said, ‘Civil Folk are a local band who provide a varied programme of entertainment including songs, stories and some sing-a-long tunes as well.

‘This is our first fundraising event of 2012, and it promises to be a fantastic event. Tickets are limited, so I would urge you to get one soon!

‘Events like this help fund the RNLI, and allow the volunteers to continue to save lives at sea. Kinghorn lifeboat has already launched on service twice in 2012, most recently on Saturday after small dinghy was spotted drifting off Dysart. The lifeboat located this vessel and returned it to Dysart harbour. Fortunately no one had been on board the dinghy.’

Tickets for our SOS event are available from Kinghorn Community Centre, the Glory Hole, and Dragon’s Den. They cost £5.50 and include lunch. All profits will go to the RNLI.
