    Story

    I have been a supporter of the Stornoway Lifeboat for almost 50 years since becoming a crew member back in 1971. Currently I serve as Chairman of the Stornoway Branch.
    It was my intention to ask for sponsorship for cycling from Stornoway to Carloway via Breasclete and back on Saturday 9th May 2020 - my 70th Birthday.
    However the forecast is not too good for Saturday , so I completed the 37 mile cycle trip today. (Wednesday 6th May 2020).
    The RNLI is entirely funded by voluntary contributions.

      As our appeal "ebbs to its close" on Saturday this will be the last update (Apart from a Vote of Thanks). I am really struggling for words to express the deep gratitude and sense of such supportive encouragement which all of us at Stornoway Lifeboat Station feel. To date 524 of YOU have generously donated the magnificent sum of £15,875 This sum is especially meaningful and highly appreciated at this time of lockdown. So each one of us at RNLI Stornoway Branch say a huge and sincere thank you to each one of YOU who has raised this money.

      Homeward Bound. Well folks we are on the last lap with just over a week left to run. YOUR response has been nothing short of overwhelming generous and all of us at the Stornoway RNLI are deeply moved and highly appreciative of your support. I have been reluctant to raise the "target" figure from £10k. The total today stands at £13,090, but I will say Lifeboatmen are a superstitious bunch and don't like the number 13! So to try and help dispel the Crew's superstitions I am reluctantly raising the target figure to £14k. Kendy Campbell's photo.

      This photo was taken on the 125th Anniversary of the Stornoway Branch of the RNLI and after a Sea Sunday Service in St Columba's in August 2012. The Stornoway Lifeboat Ladies Guild members are prominent in the photo. These are the volunteer ladies who work tirelessly all the year round fund raising for our lifeboat. They staff the shop, bake enough to feed an army, organise coffee afternoons, soup & pudding lunches , flag days, collection boxes throughout the Island etc. etc, and in a "normal" year raise thousands of pounds for the Lifeboat.
