THREE Arbroath ladies have been recognised by the RNLI for their dedicated service and fund-raising efforts.

Mo Morrison, Ann Watt and Jean Wallace were presented with badges honouring their achievements at the Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild meeting on Monday at the Sea Cadet Hall.

A member since 1989, and vice-president since 2001, Mo was awarded the silver badge for her years of work organising ladies’ dinners and other events, with the last dinner raising over £6,500.

Ann, in her role as honorary secretary, was awarded the bronze badge for her services in keeping the Guild’s financial records in order.

Pyramid box secretary Jean Wallace received a certificate of thanks for her dedication and enthusiasm counting individual fund-raising boxes and her work in the guild sub-committee which organised the last ladies’ dinner.

President Barbara Cargill said: “I am delighted that the RNLI has recognised Mo Morrison, Ann Watt and Jean Wallace for their hard work in raising funds with Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild, in support of our lifeboat and crew here in Arbroath.”

The three ladies will receive their RNLI awards at the annual meeting of the Scottish Lifeboat Council in Perth on June 6.
