Crew and Ladies Guild along with Chris and Debbie Ingham

Over 70 friends, Ladies Guild members and crew attended Filey Lifeboat’s fish supper, courtesy of restaurant owners Chris and Debbie Ingham, and were treated to a fantastic evening which included fish and chips with mushy peas, delicious desserts and drinks along with a raffle and a quiz.

The quiz, as always, proved a bit of a challenge for most teams but was eventually won by the Lifeboat crew.

There were a considerable number of prizes on offer for the raffle all of which had been donated by other Filey traders and friends of the Station.

John Ward, Filey Lifeboat Pres Officer said: It was a fantastic evening culminating in a great amount raised for Filey Lifeboat. Many thanks to all our friends who supported the event, to our Ladies Guild for running the evening and to Chris and Debbie Ingham and their staff for their generosity”
