Boat­load of fun

The Oban Times - - News -

THE Oban lifeboat held a hugely suc­cess­ful open day at the week­end and raised more than £4,000.

The event on Satur­day fea­tured fast trips around Oban Bay, cour­tesy of Sea­fari’s RIB, which were sold out, as were the burg­ers and raf­fle tick­ets on of­fer and Mer­lin trike rides. The RNLI also thanked lo­cal busi­ness for their sup­port.

The day, at Oban Lifeboat Sta­tion on the South Pier, also pro­vided the pub­lic with a chance to step aboard the lifeboat and meet the crew.

And spe­cial guest on the day was the RNLI’s youth mas­cot, Stormy Stan, the lifeboat man.
