Lifeboat kayak cash boost
‘SEA’ this cheque - it’s a whopper. The fundraising endeavours of some adventurous kayakers saw a cheque for £2,500 presented to one of Oban’s busiest charities. The money raised at the Oban Sea Kayak Race was presented to the crew of Oban lifeboat, who regularly help people and boats in emergency situations. The 2015 Oban Sea Kayak Race took place on Saturday August 29, with more than 50 paddlers taking part.
