Janet raises £25,000 for lifeboat

Janet Gibson from Maybole, who has raised £25,000 over the years for Port William’s volunteer lifeboat PIRSAC, has decided to call it a day.

Last week she met with PIRSAC representatives George McKenzie and Gavin Lockhart at the Sands of Luce Caravan Park, where Janet spends most weekends, to receive a final cheque for £1455.

PIRSAC chairman George thanked Janet and all her supporters for their tremendous efforts and loyalty to PIRSAC. Much of the funds were raised at Sands of Luce thanks to the owner Mr Copeland and all on site who contributed to Janet’s appeal.

A token of appreciation was handed to Janet from Gavin as a reminder of how much her fundraising was appreciated by all the members of PIRSAC and George wished Janet and her husband Dick every happiness in the future.
