Dedication of St Abbs Independent Lifeboat
Supt Claire McIntosh conducted the Dedication of St Abbs Independent Lifeboat on Saturday in glorious sunshine.
It was a huge occasion with a luncheon where she was formally introduced to Nicola Sturgeon and the principal benefactor Boyd Tunnock (donating £260,000) in her capacity of Fishermen’s Mission Superintendent conducting the official Dedication.
Supt Claire said “It was an incredible and awesome experience to be able to represent the Fishermen’s Mission in such high profile company. There were hundreds of people. It was a very emotional day for many as the community have been fund raising for 12 months since being closed down by the RNLI. It is testament to an amazing community of united and determined individuals. ”
