LERWICK Lifeboat’s coffee morning at the weekend raised £3,000 for the RNLI charity.

The coffee morning was held on board the NorthLink ferry Hrossey on Saturday.

The lifeboat guild and crew said they wished to thank everyone who attended on a beautiful day, and the stall holders and volunteers who came along to ensure the event was a success.

A spokeswoman said: “We would also like to thank Jane Leask and all the crew and shore side staff for the Hrossey. And also a big thank you to [Lerwick Up Helly Aa) Jarl Ivor Cluness and his squad for presenting the Lerwick Lifeboat with the Jarl squad plaque.”

She added: “The RNLI is a charity dependent upon public support and donations so that its volunteer lifeboat crew can continue to save lives at sea.”
