£1,000 raised for RNLI at Maritime Developments’ event

The company raised funds in support of its charity of choice, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) as part of its anniversary celebrations.

The fundraiser featured in the company’s 15th anniversary hog roast which took place at Maritime Developments’ electrical workshop.

The proceeds from the afternoon’s activities, including an ice bucket challenge, a prize raffle and Formula 1 and golf simulators, totalled £1,000.

The sum will go towards day-to-day lifeboat operations and maintenance at the RNLI’s Peterhead base.

Alastair Wilson, lifeboat mechanic at RNLI Peterhead, said: “It’s always good to be working with a local company and to see it thrive.

“It’s a very big operation that they’re running and they’re doing an absolutely sterling job. We’re grateful for the support shown by Maritime Developments.”
