VIDEO: RNLI rewards Bute couple’s fund-raising efforts

The owners of a Rothesay restaurant have been recognised by the local branch of the RNLI for their fund-raising efforts on the organisation’s behalf.

Ann and Tim Saul, from Brechin’s on Bridgend Street, host an annual coffee morning in aid of the RNLI at their restaurant, and received a framed certificate of recognition from the branch’s longest serving member, Nancy Noddings, this week.

The presentation came at the end of another successful fund-raiser for the UK’s lifeboats, with a steady stream of visitiors popping in to donate to the cause while enjoying a reviving cuppa and a delicious cake or two.

“Having moved from the Isle of Wight to the Isle of Bute, and being boat owners, both my wife and myself are very conscious of the importance of the RNLI to island communities,” Tim said.
