Busy Weekend for Fundraisers at Stonehaven RNLI

Lifeboats News Release

May weekend was a very busy time for our fundraisers.

Day time on Friday 6 May saw our ladies in Asda collecting and selling Yellow Welly Pin Badges.  In the evening they held a Cheese and Wine event with local entertainer Ray Moore singing 'Songs from the Sea'.  This was held in Stonehaven British Legion. Ray Moore was excellent and a great night was had by all.

On Sunday 8 May the Annual Welly Walk took place from the RNLI boat house at the Harbour in Stonehaven, to Cowie, along the boardwalk and back.  The weather was very favourable for us and a big well done to all who took part. All in all a good weekend all round. The fantastic total amount raised for the weekend was £1746.78
