Lifeboat Operations Manager Alan Burgess said, ‘It was really interesting meeting and chatting with the team from KOSB and we were very grateful to have been chosen to receive a donation of £500 from them this year.These vital funds will help support the RNLI in their mission to save lives at sea’.
Volunteer Press Officer Jeanette Hardy added, ‘It really was a pleasure to meet the KOSB team and hear some of their stories of their time in the army. The team here at Portpatrick really appreciate their support.
