2010 Festive News Roundup.

Saturday 1st January 2011.

It's been a busy festive period at Peterhead Lifeboat Station. We are pleased to announce that our wonderful fundraisers managed to raise a highly impressive £1268 bagpacking at Morrisons on the 30th December. We are extremely grateful to all the end of year shoppers who dipped into their pockets, and to our fundraisers for taking the time out of their busy new years preperations to help raise money for our organisation.

We also managed to complete our RNLI Peterhead Lifeboat Station cookbook, a wonderful book packed full of mouth watering recipe's. The book, retailing at £6 per copy, has proven so successful that we are in the process of printing off more copies. If you would like to secure your copy, please contact Peterhead Lifeboat Station on 01779 473 331.

And as if all that wasn't enough, Peterhead Lifeboat was called out on the evening of 25th December, 2010. Yes, a Christmas Day callout. This was the first Christmas Day callout in the history of Peterhead Lifeboat. A fishing boat lost power in the harbour and was drifting uncontrolled, so the lifeboat was called out to secure the fishing vessel. Within 10 minutes of the page the boat was fully manned and untied from the dock ready to go. At that point the lifeboat was stood down as the fishing vessel had drifted close enough to a berthed boat to be secured, and the lifeboat' services were no longer required. It doesnt take away from the fact that the crew was ready and willing to sacrifice their time on Christmas day to put their lives at risk to save others, a commitment shared by each and every member of the RNLI.
