Berwick RNLI Race Night

The event starts at the Castle Hotel on Friday 30 March and promises to be a 'fun packed' Race Night.

The first Race starts at 7pm and there will be a raffle which will be drawn on the night and also a light supper.

The evening will provide an opportunity to help the local lifeboat crew who are on call 24/7 365 days of the year. All of the money raised will help to buy essential equipment so that the volunteers can go out in all weathers safely to save lives at sea.

Key facts about the RNLI

The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
