Kinghorn Lifeboat volunteers are celebrating a record-breaking open day.

The annual highlight of the RNLI station’s fundraising raised £4230 on Saturday.

Volunteers were relieved that the rain stayed away, leading to an enjoyable and successful day for the station and the hundreds of visitors.

Crowds enjoyed a range of stalls including plants, tombola and home-baking as well as beach activities from Fife’s Active Schools co-ordinators including welly throwing, treasure hunts and beach games.

There were visits from HM Coastguard, the Scottish Ambulance service, the fire service and Fife police dogs, while a tug, the Hopetoun, showed her fire-fighting capability with a breathtaking display.

Highlight of the day was a rescue demonstration by the lifeboat in Kinghorn bay of a crew of a boat which had caught fire.
