Lifeboat Ladies’ SOS fund-raiser

The Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild have emerged from the festive period ready to tackle a full calendar of fund-raising in 2014.

The first event is the RNLI Save Our Souls coffee morning on Saturday, February 1, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Helen Street clubrooms of the Royal British Legion Scotland.

Entry is £1 with all the usual stalls, home baked shortbread, snowballs and a raffle.

A spokesperson for the Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild said: “When you consider the wild weather we have been having recently whilst we were tucked up cosy and warm inside, spare a thought for the brave members of the Arbroath lifeboat crew who go out in all weathers to save others in danger off our coast. Without your help they would not manage to put out to sea with the vital resources that are necessary to keep them as safe and sound as possible.

“All funds go toward equipping our Arbroath lifeboat and it’s crew, so come along on February 1 and join in on our SOS Coffee Morning fun.”
