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."

Pupils wrote to the crew.
