THE annual Newbiggin Lifeboat Day raised more than £2,000 with more donations still coming in.

Hundreds turned out to show their support for the lifeboat volunteers despite the changeable weather.

Spokesperson Richard Martin said: “On behalf of Newbiggin RNLI Lifeboat 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 calender with many months of work by all of the volunteer team here to make it all come together and be a success on the day.”
