The money was raised as the Quay Motorcycle club celebrated their 10th anniversary bike show held during this year’s Tynemouth Lifeboat Day, which attracted over 300 motorcycles, scooters, their riders and over a thousand visitors.

Rob McGinley, Chairman of the Quay Motorcycle Club, said ‘It’s a real privilege to be part of such a positive motorcycling vent here on Tyneside. The club are very proud of their close connection with Tynemouth RNLI lifeboat station and the volunteer crew.’

John Coulter, who coordinated the bike show, added: ‘We’d like to thank again the marshals who volunteer each year as without them the show could’t go on.

‘Most of all a huge thanks go to the motorcyclists and scooter riders from either side of the Tyne who’ve made this event a great success for ten years, and of course thanks to the visitors who enjoy Tynemouth RNLI Lifeboat Day and Bike Show as much as we do.

David Stenhouse, Tynemouth RNLI volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager, said: ‘We’re very grateful to the Quay Motorcycle Club for once again organising the Bike Show that’s become such an integral part of our annual fundraising day.

‘The RNLI relies on the generosity of the public and the £1300 contribution will all be used locally to help keep our lifeboats and volunteer crew members saving lives at sea’.
