FISH SUPPERS CAUGHT BY SELL OUT CROWD

12/10/2015

Kinghorn Lifeboat Station hosted their first RNLI Fish Supper on Saturday night, with every ticket being sold for the new event.

The successful evening was held in the boat hall of the lifeboat station, and sixty five people came along to enjoy a fish supper and catch up with friends and speak to the crew.

The RNLI Fish Supper is a new event where the charity has asked people to hold a fundraising fish supper event, on any scale, to raise money for the Institution, which relies entirely on donations to provide its lifesaving service.

Lifeboat crewmember, and event organiser, Mel McGarva said, ‘I thought this would be a fun event to organise, and that it would be great to hold it in the station, surrounded by much of the lifesaving equipment. It was an informal event, where people were invited to join the crew for a fish supper.

‘We were delighted that so many people came along; we sold out 65 tickets for the event, a sell-out!

‘We raised over £400 from the event, and this will help us run our service. It costs over £1,600 to kit out a volunteer crewmember; fundraising is essential to keep our crew properly equipped.

‘I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along, and to everyone who helped organise the event. I’d also thank Kinghorn Chip Shop and Rinaldi’s Fish Bar who both supported us and provided generous discounts for the suppers.

‘Our next event will be our famous Spooky Walks which will run on 29-31st October. Booking details will be available shortly on our website and social media platforms.’
