Motorcycle Group's RNLI Donation
An Easter egg special delivery event helped raise funds for Newbiggin lifeboat recently with a cheque presented to Newbiggin lifeboat volunteers.
Ron Boulton from Global Motorbike Tours commented 'It was lovely to meet you all on Sunday at the RNLI and to see where the money we raised will be invested. You obviously all have very important roles and every penny is well spent. As a North East company we like to sponsor deserving local charities and after meeting Bob from Northumbria Egg Run it was an obvious choice to help raise money for yourselves at the lifeboat. Being a motorbike company organising trips to India, Vietnam and South Africa, I have connections with local clubs that donate to charity and am more than willing to help raise awareness for local charities wherever possible'.
