Crew members from Blyth RNLI held a car wash as part of the RNLI’s national Mayday campaign, which raises funds for new kit.

Spectrum and Autosmart International supplied the car washing products and TSG Marine supplied yellow wellies.

Barry Pearson, lifeboat operations manager for Blyth RNLI, said: “It’s been another fantastic event with all the volunteers connected with the lifeboat station coming together to make it a success.

“I’d like to thank the public for their support and giving so generously. We raised £649.10.

“I’d also like to thank Spectrum, Autosmart International and TSG Marine.”
