Station swings into action for charity

A county power station has teamed up with the Royal british Legion to support its Poppy Appeal charity golf tournament.

Lynemouth Power Station has teamed up with The Royal British Legion Newbiggin and North Seaton Branch to support its Poppy Appeal Charity Golf Tournament.

The Royal British Legion, hosted its annual fundraiser at Newbiggin Golf Club, and Lynemouth Power Limited sponsored the event for the second year in succession, donating £2,000 to The Poppy Appeal in addition to providing trophies and prizes on the day.

The tournament successfully generated over £3,000 in much-needed funds which will help the charity continue providing practical and direct support to members of the British Armed Forces and their dependents.

Vaun Campbell, managing director at Lynemouth Power Station, said: “We are extremely proud to continue our charitable sponsorship again this year. The Royal British Legion and its volunteers provide a vital service in the work they do.

“As a local company we are committed to supporting initiatives which bring people together to have fun and raise money for an important cause.”

Keith Laws, county chairman of the Royal British Legion Northumbria, added: “We are so grateful for the support of Lynemouth Power, with their sponsorship we have more than doubled the amount raised which makes a huge difference to our local Poppy Appeal.”
