Scarborough RNLI receives generous donation from local club
Scarborough Yacht Club has raised £1,231 for the lifeboat over the last year.
Club commodore Steve Parker presented a cheque to Colin Woodhead, who chairs Scarborough RNLI, at the club, in the lighthouse, on Saturday (2 April).
The money was raised at three collections: at the annual RNLI pennant race, at the annual trophy presentation and with a jar on the bar.
