Scottish RNLI lifeboats 150th anniversary plea

This coming Sunday churches across Scotland will be commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Scottish lifeboat service, first established in Fraserburgh in 1858. At the same time, RNLI Scotland is taking the opportunity to launch a fundraising drive to raise a much needed £1 million to keep the service afloat.
