Arbroath churchgoers are a splash hit with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) after raising £300 through a sponsored walk.
The donation was part of fundraising by the town’s St Thomas’s Church and was presented to the charity by Father Joseph James.
Parishioners took part in an eight-mile trek from St Anne’s Church in Carnoustie to St Thomas’s.
They were supported on the walk by the coastal parishes of Arbroath, Carnoustie and Monifieth, as well as St Andrew’s Cathedral in Dundee.
