10th Anniversary of Rockcliffe Arms Leek Club supporting RNLI Cullercoats
RNLI Cullercoats has again been supported by Rockcliffe Arms Leek Club for the 10th year running by raising the generous sum of £830 by their members this year.
This year’s total added to the previous sum raised now brings the total amount the Leek Club has given Cullercoats Lifeboat to just under £10,000.
This year’s total was raised over one weekend with a variety of tombolas, raffles and domino cards as well as the help and support of both staff and customers.
Mal Ross, who has run the leek club for ten years as Chairman said ‘One of the reasons we continue to support RNLI Cullercoats is because we have seen first-hand where our funds go to. Supporting a local charity run by local volunteers who give their time is an important reason why we help the lifeboat. I would like to thank all the staff and customers at the Rockcliffe Arms who help to support our fund raising efforts throughout the year.’
Frank Taylor, Operations Manager Cullercoats Lifeboat, said: ‘Having had the fabulous support for ten years now from the Rockcliffe Arms Leek Club is greatly appreciated. The amount they have raised over the years has directly benefitted the funding of Cullercoats RNLI which goes towards maintaining the station and updating new equipment, helping save lives at sea. Big thanks must go to all who have supported the Leek Club at the Rockcliffe Arms’.
