Crowds at Newbiggin Lifeboat Day.

Newbiggin RNLI’s annual Lifeboat Day raised more than £5,000.

The boatpark had a variety of stalls, including souvenirs, tombola, home made cards, nearly new, bric-a-brac, raffle and homemade cakes.

There was live music by West Coast Band and the local band Steel by the Sea, Newbiggin Coastguard Rescue Team provided other displays around the boathouse area, and there were demonstrations by Newbiggin lifeboat in Newbiggin Bay.

Anne Main, chairman of the Newbiggin Ladies Lifeboat Fundraising Team, said: “On behalf of the volunteers, thank you to everyone who has made this local fundraising event such a huge success.”
