LIFEBOAT: Hard work has paid off

On behalf of Newbiggin Lifeboat Station, can I give a big thank-you to everyone who made our Lifeboat Day such a success.

This year more than £2,650 was raised – a fantastic result.

Despite mixed weather on the day, the success of the event was due to the hard work of the volunteer team, the generosity of our many supporters and donors, and everyone else who did their bit to help us in many ways.

In addition, the volunteer team ran a further event at the lifeboat station to coincide with the Newbiggin Maritime Tall Ships Fringe Festival, where more than £600 was raised over a very busy Bank Holiday Monday.

Once again, thank you to everyone for your continued support.
