Filey RNLI Christmas Sing-along.
Filey Lifeboat Station invites everyone to go down to the lifeboat house on Coble Landing, Filey this Saturday 16th December at 4pm to join their Christmas Carol sing-along.
Led by Ebor Academy (Filey) Choir, the event which has been organised by Filey Ladies Lifeboat Guild, will be an opportunity to start Christmas on the “right note” and to support Filey Lifeboat at the same time.
There will be a selection of carols old and new; and along with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, it promises to be ideal time for everyone to sing their hearts out: old and young; singers and non-singers; and to make a donation to Filey Lifeboat whose volunteers will be on call throughout the festive period.
John Ward, Lifeboat Press Officer said: “We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible turn out to sing carols in front of the lifeboat and enjoy themselves. All donations go directly to the running of Filey Lifeboat Station.”
