'Boat Jumble' bonus for Hartlepool RNLI
Hartlepool RNLI Enterprise Branch raised a respectable £241.00 for the charity that saves lives at sea during the recent ‘Boat Jumble’ that was held at the Hartlepool Marina.
‘Hartlepool RNLI Chairman Malcolm Cook said ‘Once again the Enterprise Branch have worked hard to raise a considerable amount to support our volunteer crew members at the Ferry Road lifeboat station who I know have had a busy week attending shouts throughout the day and night providing valuable support for those in trouble at sea’.
‘I would like to thank the Hartlepool Marina Berth Holders Group who hosted the event and everyone who contributed to the day to make it such a great success’.
