RNLI: We rely on support

The committee of the Ashington branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution would like to thank the residents of Wansbeck for their support in 2015 when we raised £5,555.60.

In the north of England our lifeboats were launched 954 times, rescuing 903 people.

The RNLI flood rescue team rescued 400 people from floods in Cumbria over three days in December, and our lifeguards dealt with 1,721 incidents, assisting 2,065 people.

We rely on your generosity to support our brave lifeboat volunteer crews and hope it will continue in 2016.

If you would like to help, have a free presentation about the service or Grace Darling, or would like to visit a working station, please ring Mavis Crudace on (01670) 815995.
