Arbroath Lifeboat Ladies’ race night a success

The Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild’s horse came in at their fund-raising race night recently.

The event, held in the Meadowbank Inn on September 29, made a profit of approximately £1,000 which will go into the pot to help the Arbroath Lifeboat crew.

An enjoyable evening was had by all, with the individual horse and sponsored race names creating much hilarity. President of Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild, Barbara Cargill said: “A big thank you must go to the group of helpers from Ladbrokes, who kept everyone on their toes and, of course, to the staff at the Meadowbank Inn for all their assistance.

“The stovies, which were up to their usual high standard were served at half time and helped to stimulate the taste buds and ensure everyone had enough energy for the rest of the night’s entertainment.”
