Successful Open Day Raises over £3,000 for Invergordon Lifeboat 27/06/2013
 The Cromarty Firth Port Authority and the Invergordon Lifeboat joined forces for the 8th year, staging another successful open day at Invergordon despite the threatening weather.  Over £3,000 was raised towards the upkeep of the lifeboat station and this amount is expected to rise.

Those visiting could enjoy free trips out in the Firth in the Port’s Pilot boat as well as watch a display by the RAF Sea King helicopter and Invergordon lifeboat.

In addition members of the public were able to meet the Ports Board, enjoy the Black Rock Ceilidh band and ‘walk on water’ in the popular WOW balls.

Bob Buskie, who recently took over as Chief Executive of the Port Authority,   said “We would especially like to thank the Emergency Services and everyone who gave their time to make this day a success.  We are delighted the day raised such important funds for the Invergordon Lifeboat. 

This was my first opportunity to meet the community and take part in the Open Day.  I thank Captain Ken Gray for all the work he did in preparation for the event before he retired earlier this month.”

Kevin Dent, RNLI Invergordon Event Organiser, said “ It was a great day.  We managed to sell over 450 burgers, not counting hot dogs and bacon rolls, so the sea air certainly seemed to be giving people an appetite.”
