Generous support results in a Christmas Fair success
Today's Christmas fair raised over £1000 over a busy Sunday afternoon
Hot drinks along with a plentiful supply of donated cakes all round, together with the tombola and bric-a-brac sale helped along brisk sales.
Many thanks to everyone who supported the Newbiggin Lifeboat Fundraising team on the day as well as those who donated and baked for the event. After counting up today over £1,000 was raised with further money still to come in. The Christmas raffle sold out and whilst a few of the prizes have been claimed further details of the winners are posted outside the boathouse and in local shops.
