EX-VOLUNTEERS DONATE TO VOLUNTEERS

20/09/2006



RNLI volunteers at Kinghorn Lifeboat Station received a welcome addition to their fundraising year, last night, when they were presented with a cheque for £150 that had been raised by members of RNSX Rosyth Branch.

The RNSX members are an association of ex- Royal Navy Volunteer Reservists, who set up after the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve was disbanded. Each year the association donates monies to various charities, and the RNLI were chosen as this years charity.

The Rosyth group of RNSX meet every Wednesday at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club where they are restoring a cabin cruiser for use of the clubs younger members.

Charlie Tulloch, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Kinghorn's RNLI Station said, "This donation came right out of the blue! We have a fundraising branch of the RNLI in Kinghorn who work hard collecting funds for the charity, through various coffee mornings, door collections and the Open Day, and it is a constant battle to keep sufficient funding for the charity to provide the 24/7 rescue capability 365 days of the year, so any donations from outside bodies are always warmly accepted. I wish to convey my gratitude and that of the crews, to the RNSX for their donation."
