RNLI fundraisers arrive

James and Belinda Richardson greeted in Lerwick.

TWO fundraisers have arrived in the isles as part of a quest to visit all 238 RNLI lifeboat stations in the UK.

Retired couple James and Belinda Richardson visited the Lerwick and Aith stations on Friday as they drive around the country in a Porsche 911.

They left the Teddington RNLI station in London on 23 August and they aim to complete their journey in 911 hours.

The couple hope to arrive back in London on 30 September.

Lerwick lifeboat coxswain Darren Harcus said the fundraising challenge is a “huge personal commitment by them and we hope that folk in Shetland will support them too”.

“The funds raised will help to train and equip RNLI volunteer crews to provide a 24-hour rescue service to save lives at sea,” he added.
