Staff at Cairnryan P&O terminal, and crews on the ferries have for many years raised money for the RNLI by placing and administering collecting boxes at prominent positions throughout the terminal and on the ferries.

RNLI Portpatrick box manager Peter Walker said: “Amounts raised from the P&O collection boxes on the ships represents a significant proportion of the monies raised in the Portpatrick area boxes, and we are very grateful for the support and generosity of the P&O Crews and passengers.”
