The world’s first practical life-saving charity and one of Scotland’s oldest charities – the Glasgow Humane Society – celebrates its 221st birthday with the launch of a public appeal in George Square, Glasgow on Tuesday (16th August).
The “Riverman Appeal” aims to raise £100,000 from the public and local businesses to purchase a new patrol lifeboat and support vehicle and new life-saving equipment to continue its vital work on the River Clyde and the city’s waterways.
The Glasgow Humane Society was set up in 1790 with a £200 legacy from local merchant James Coulter for the “prevention, rescue and recovery” of people on the Clyde and the city’s waterways.
