WHITEFORD VISITS PETERHEAD LIFEBOAT

Sunday, 8 November 2009


SNP Westminster candidate for Banff & Buchan Eilidh Whiteford paid a visit to the Peterhead Lifeboat last week.

The SNP candidate took time out to hand over a donation to the RNLI from local MP Alex Salmond. The Banff & Buchan MP took part in a recent research survey being conducted by a national company which offered a small sum of money to a local good cause for his time. Mr Salmond nominated the Peterhead lifeboat as a worthy recipient.

Whilst there, local RNLI official Andy Elliot gave Eilidh a tour of the lifeboat and briefed her on operations at the station.

Speaking afterwards, Eilidh Whiteford said:

"The RNLI plays a vital role in the coastal communities of the North-east. We owe a huge debt to those people who are prepared to give their time and risk their lives as volunteers on the lifeboat.

"This was the first time I have been aboard "The Misses Robertson of Kintail", and I was really impressed by the incredible technology on display. This is a real state-of-the-art vessel of which Peterhead can be justifiably proud."
