The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat volunteers are inviting supporters to join them for a Fish Supper on 10th October at the Lifeboat Station.

Our crewmembers regularly get called away from breakfast, lunch, and dinner to go to sea, in often horrendous conditions, and now we are putting out a ‘shout’ for our supporters to join the crew for a fish supper to help raise funds for this essential service.

The event will be held in the boat hall of the Lifeboat Station, starting at 7.30, with the suppers served around 8pm.

Crewmember Mel McGarva said, ‘This will be a chance for our supporters, and friends from our flank stations, to join us for a bite to eat, a few drinks and a general chit-chat!

‘We’re moving the boat out for the night and setting up tables and chairs. The fish suppers will be served in the boat hall, amongst many pieces of our equipment, this should make a fantastic setting for the night. It’ll be a great opportunity to see the kit, speak to the crew and have fun!

‘Tickets are £10, and this includes your fish supper. Please bring your own bottle if you need something to wash your supper down! We’ll have cans of juice for sale.

‘Hopefully the pager will stay quiet for the night, but if not you’ll get to see first hand the boat launching. The remaining crew will no doubt help clear the remaining suppers!

‘It costs around £1,500 per year to train each crewmember; fundraising events like this supper are essential to keeping our crew safe at sea.’

Tickets are available from Kinghorn Community Centre. They will be available for sale until Friday 9th October.
