Golfers in Helensburgh have raised hundreds of pounds to give the town's lifeboat crew a helping hand.

More than 200 players competed in the mixed scramble competition at Helensburgh Golf Club at the end of March in aid of the RNLI.

A total of £300 was raised for the lifeboat from the 208 golfers who took part.

Howard Morrison, the RNLI's local operations manager, said: “Thank you to all the golfers from Helensburgh Golf Club who played in last month’s scramble to raise money for the Helensburgh lifeboat.

“In 2023 we had 59 call outs, and this year, so far, we have had 12.

“The RNLI is a charity, and we rely on donations to provide our volunteer crew with the essential equipment and training they need to save lives at sea.”

Three teams tied for first place as they all scored a total of 49 points.

The winning teams were: R. Smith, Ian Harrington, G. Thorley and C. Downie; I. Carswell, S. Slee, K. Gash and J. McColl; and E. Cameron, G. Cairns, D. Lafferty and C. Barbour.
