Lifeboat Day once again a success

NEWBIGGIN RNLI Lifeboat Station raised more than £2,400 through the recent annual Lifeboat Day.

On behalf of the station can I send out a big thank you to everybody for making this event such a great success.

This is an established event in the community calendar with many months of work by all of the volunteer team to make it happen.

Many thanks also to the hundreds who came along despite the changeable weather to support us, it was greatly appreciated.

The raffle was drawn and the list of prizes has been put on display throughout Newbiggin. There are two unclaimed prizes – 01184 and 0661.

With the event over for another year, fundraising continues with a car boot sale adjacent to Newbiggin Lifeboat Station taking place on Monday, August 29, from 10am until 4pm. All money raised will go to Newbiggin Lifeboat, and for further details contact Gary Oliver on 07923 470881.
