Kinghorn Lifeboat Station is an RNLI funded and operated rescue station on the coast of Fife, three miles from Kirkcaldy and across the Forth estuary from Edinburgh. We are available and ready 24 hours a day, every single day of the year to assist the MCA (Coastguard agency) in effecting rescues between Elie Ness/Aberlady to the east, and Inchcolm/Granton to the west.

In 2015 we celebrated 50 years of saving lives at sea. It was in 1965 that the RNLI first placed a lifeboat in Kinghorn.

* RECRUITMENT: WE NEED YOU * Why not volunteer with us and help save lives at sea? You'd be surprised who can do it! See our recruitment pages and crew case studies to find out more. Come and visit us any Sunday morning, Friday or Monday evenings if you would like to meet the crew.



Please join us and take part in our RNLI charity Santa Run on Saturday 25th November 2017. Pick up your Outfits at 10:15 with Race Start 10:45. Location: Kinghorn Golf Club Burntisland Road, KY3 9RS

Like last year, the fun run is suitable for adults and children and is around a mile in length. Even some parents with buggies joined in!

Join our team of Santas and raise a minimum of £10 in sponsorship/donation per adult or £6 for children.

Santa suits for adults and Elf hats for kids will be provided for your run so all you have to do is help us raise funds, turn up with a pair of trainers and have fun. If the kids all try and wear red and/or green then the elves will look more like the real thing!

If you have your own Santa or Elf outfit (from last year perhaps), we can reduce the minimum donation to £8 adults & £5 for kids as long as everyone comes looking the part!

All elves will get a selection box and your outfits will also act as a free pass for the Christmas Fare which is in Kinghorn Church hall on the same day!
