Look who popped up to support Oban lifeboat this weekend!

Holidaymakers Harris and Rosie Booth were with dad Tom, a member of Keswick lifeboat crew, when they spotted the RNLI pop-up stall and went to say hello.

The youngsters, aged nine and six, were all smiles for this jolly yellow welly snap.

Oban fundraisers set a record for knitting pairs of mini yellow wellies in May this year and challenged other stations to have a go at beating it for 2022.

Tom, who is also a systems training and support officer for the RNLI, will be rallying contenders to take up the challenge when he gets back to work.

A pair of these record-setting mini-wellies can be yours in return for a donation, go to the next pop-up stall back on the North Pier on July 31, August 14 or on August 28, from 10am to 4pm.
