The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat Fundraising Branch held their second event of the year on Saturday when members of Kirkcaldy Amateur Operatic Society performed at a lunchtime concert for over 80 people.

This event held in Kinghorn Church Hall, featured the Principal Singers of Kirkcaldy Amateur Operatic Society (KAOS) who performed a medley of their recent songs with lunch served to the audience. The event raised £800 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution charity.

This annual event is part of the RNLI’s national SOS day where supporters are challenged to hold a fundraising event with a SOS theme. This was the final SOS day held, with the new national fundraising day moving to May Day in future.

Kinghorn fundraising committee chairperson, Sheona Smith said, ‘I would like to thank every one who supported us today, including our supporters, KAOS and the band of fundraisers who helped run the day.

‘We raised £800 which is just fabulous. We had a lot of good feedback from our supporters with many looking forward to our next event.

‘The money raised will help to fund the RNLI and ensure our volunteer crews continue to be well trained with the best equipment to ensure they can continue saving lives at sea.

‘We will be holding our AGM on Wednesday 18th February at 7.30pm, and if you would like to find out more and join the fundraising group at Kinghorn we would be delighted to see you. The meeting will be held in Kinghorn Community Centre.’
