A generous cheque for £20,000 is being split between Kyle of Lochalsh and Portree Lifeboat Stations.
The family donation was made by Rodger Harvey-Jamieson at a presentation at Kyle of Lochalsh Lifeboat Station.
Each station will receive £10,000 to supports its life-saving work from the legacy provided by Mr Harvey-Jamieson’s family.
Another big fundraiser for the RNLI was also present. Alfie Edwards, representing the Applecross Boat Pull Team, handed over a cheque for £1,000 to each station.
The team has been fundraising for local charities and the RNLI for several years, leading to several lifeboat stations receiving donations.
Since 2002, the Applecross team’s members have set themselves the annual task of pulling a replica lifeboat to an RNLI lifeboat station, collecting hundreds of thousands of pounds for various charities along the way.
Stations to benefit over the years have included Barra, Thurso and Lochinver. The most recent pull was to the Kyle of Lochalsh RNLI station.
The cheques were received during a presentation by the Kyle ILB Lifeboat, Spirit of Fred Olsen, an Atlantic 85.
On hand to thank Mr Harvey-Jamieson and Mr Edwards were Hamish Corrigall, Portree Coxswain, and John Ellis, Portree launch operations manager. Representing Kyle Lifeboat Station were Emma Noble and Daniel Elliot.
Last year, Portree lifeboat crew and fundraisers received a cheque for £20,234 from Portree Co-op’s community fund.
