"One not only drinks wine, one smells it, observes it, tastes it, sips it and - one talks about it." - King Edward VII

A special thank you to Murray Lamont, his team of helpers from the Mackays Hotel and especially to Stuart Logan for assisting us with the wine tasting evening. Stuart gave an excellent presentation on subject and without whom we would never have had such a successful event. We raised £500.00. Many thanks to all who attended we hope you had an enjoyable evening.!

Wick lifeboat receives generous donation from family of long time RNLI supporter

 Tracy Bain, David Bain and Karen Bain present a cheque for £650.00 collected from a recent service at the Pulteney Parish Church, Argyle Square Wick, for the late Thomas (Tucker) Bain husband of Ann Bain.
Tucker was a long supporter of Wick Lifeboat and was often found at many of our fundraising events.
The crew of the Wick lifeboat would like to thank Ann and the family for their donation and pass on sincere sympathy for the loss of Thomas.

16 brave souls are taking on this testing challenge in aid of Wick Lifeboat.  Stroma is an uninhabited island in the Pentland Firth.  At only with just some sheep for company these brave souls will have to endure the elements, forage for what little food there is, and with no electricity available survive these most demanding conditions.  The team that completes the most "Stroma Trials" will be the winning team!!

They will be rescued from the island on 23rd August by lifeboat and taken to John O Groats in conjunction with their Harbour Day Celebrations.
