Kirktown Garden Center has presented a check for £ 1,888 to Stonehaven RNLI following its annual fashion show held in April.

The fashion show, held on Thursday 19 April at Kirktown Garden Center, saw four of the volunteer crew join members of the Stonehaven RNLI fundraising team as models.

The event was also hosted by World Champion Curling Champion and Stonehaven resident, Jackie Lockhart.

Andy Martin, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Stonehaven RNLI, says: “The RNLI is extremely grateful to the Kirktown Garden Center for organizing their annual Spring Fashion Show in the aid of RNLI Stonehaven. The show was arranged pre-Covid to help benefit the RNLI so we were delighted to see the event go ahead successfully. The funds raised will help us to continue to save lives at sea. ”

This May, the Stonehaven RNLI station will see a team of 10 take on the Aberdeen Kilt Walk on Sunday 29 May.
