Aeryn
who has just turned 12, from Alness wished to raise some money to help
celebrate Invergordon Lifeboat Station’s 40th Anniversary, a keen
swimmer, it did not take her long to think of a suitable but challenging task.

 

The
Cromarty Firth is 19 miles (30.6 km) long and is the main operational area for
Invergordon’s Trent Class Lifeboat ‘Douglas
Aikman Smith’.

 

Aeryn’s
challenge took place in a more climatised location of the local swimming pools
of Alness, Tain and Inverness where she swum a staggering 1224 lengths, in just
little over a month and a half.

 

Aeryn
set up a donation page where family and friends could sponsor her and to date
has raised over £400 for the RNLI.

 

Aeryn’s
mum Dawn Cleary said “We are very proud of Aeryn and her achievement and
raising such a great amount for Invergordon Lifeboat Station and the RNLI”.

 

Station
Mechanic and Fundraising Chairman Kevin Dent presented Aeryn with a certificate
of achievement, a medal and a Lifeboat T-shirt as a thank you from the station
and the charity.
