Kyle of Lochalsh RNLI hosted their annual Santa’s Grotto at the weekend, raising just over £1,000.

Lots of local families got into the Christmas spirit, many donning their festive jumpers, to visit Santa at Kyle lifeboat Station.

Throughout the day there was a steady queue of children waiting to visit Santa and get their picture taken with him, while the tea, coffee and homebaking was in high demand as people tried to warm up.

There was also an opportunity for people to do some Christmas shopping, while children had the chance to post their Christmas letters to Santa at the North Pole.

A Kyle RNLI spokesperson commented: ‘We would like to thank everyone who helped make it such a success.  We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the year and we hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.’
