Cullercoats Harbour Day This Weekend!
On Saturday, (18th August), Cullercoats RNLI will host it's annual Harbour Day on Cullercoats Beach.
The sun is due to be out this weekend so if you are able, please come down to Cullercoats for our biggest fundraising event of the year. All proceeds raised at the event will go directly to Cullercoats RNLI.
Our volunteer crew and helpers have been working hard to ensure the day will be fun filled and exciting for all. Come and see the lifeboat launch and watch as the crew members demonstrate their unique training, while you eat your special 'Lifeboat Ice Cream' on the beach.
There are stalls, games and, of course, our famous nine hole mini golf, created by two of the lifeboat helms. There is plenty to do and plenty to eat for all of the family, come down and support your local lifeboat.
