Tynemouth RNLI Lifeboat Day 2015Hundreds of people joined in the fun at our annual Lifeboat Day, and helped raise money for the station.

Tynemouth RNLI Lifeboat Day saw a variety of attractions for all the family, including souvenir stands, childrens’ rides and food stalls, including our famous ‘Kippers in a Bun’.

The day raised in excess of £6000, all of which will be used locally to keep our lifeboats and volunteer crew members at sea.

The event on Sunday, July 19, also included the annual rally held by the Quay Motorcycle Club which attracted more than 200 bikes, scooters and classic cars, including rare Jaguars.

The Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade also attended and set up a static Breeches Buoy display as the very low tide didn’t allow the usual live demonstration.

Visitors also got to take a look around the all weather lifeboat Spirit of Northumberland and watch it, the inshore lifeboat and Cullercoats RNLI lifeboat perform displays. Live music was provided by local band The Parish.

David Stenhouse, volunteer lifeboat operations manager at Tynemouth RNLI, said: “Harbour Day is an important fundraising event for us but it also helps to create awareness and much appreciated support amongst the community that the lifeboat station serves.”

“We’re particularly appreciative of the Quay Motorcycle Club for their continued support as the bike rally has become a major feature of our Lifeboat Day.

“We’d like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who came to support the event, and those who turn up every year to help out.”
