Fund Raising for The St Abbs Lifeboat

Support-St-Abbs-Lifeboat-Logo-250-x-250With the RNLI closing St Abbs lifeboat station in 2105 the crew and people of St Abbs along with the divers and many others who know that this was a massive mistake started fund raising to re-establish an Independent lifeboat at St Abbs.

Most of our members have already donated to this good cause but the club had decided to fund raise and so Karen had arranged a Quiz night.

The quiz will took place on Saturday 2nd April at Glencorse Golf Club in Penicuik,  Brian Smith  kindly agreed to be our quiz master again.
