BIG-hearted pupils at a Black Isle primary have dealt a boost to their local lifeboat crew.
The youngsters at Avoch Primary organised events before lockdown for RNLI Kessock.
The delighted crew shared the boost on its social media channels. It said: "It’s been a big week for superstar RNLI supporters and today the spotlight is on the pupils of Avoch Primary School.
"Last week we had the pleasure of virtually attending their school assembly to talk about how their continued donations support our lifesaving work at sea, explaining exactly where their money goes. We then were delighted to receive this fantastic cheque, presented at a distance, from one of the pupils and a true friend of the station.
Thanks to the pupils, teachers and parents of Avoch Primary School! We hope you’re all having a brilliant holiday."
A letter from Avoch pupils said: "Before lockdown, everyone at Avoch Primary contributed to a fundraising event. We raised £485.83 and we are goingto give it to you. The event was organised by last year's primary four. They organised many fun events to raise money. We hope everyone in the RNLI is well."
