Local businesses are supporting Stornoway RNLI during the Royal National Mod with delicatessen Delights holding a raffle all this week, and Stornoway's pubs joining in fundraising with '£££s for Pints'.

Tickets for the Delights Mod Week raffle – which boasts first prize of a hamper filled with delicious Delights goodies, and second prize of a home-made Duff – are available priced £1 per strip. The winning raffle tickets will be drawn on Saturday, October 22nd.

And during October the Stornoway Lifeboat Ladies Guild are teaming up with island pubs and hotels to introduce the '£££s for Pints' fundraising initiative.

If you are enjoying one of the bars supporting the local lifesavers, why not consider putting £1, or whatever you can, into the Stornoway Lifeboat buckets.

You can find the collection buckets in: Stornoway Sea Angling Club; The Rangers Club; Loch Erisort Inn; The Carlton; The Crown; The Crit; Era: Chilli Chilli, and The Star.

Stornoway RNLI would like to say a big thank you to all for the support and fundraising efforts.
