Scarborough RNLI raise £975 at Love Your Lifeboat
Considering the inclement weather, Scarborough RNLI was delighted to have raised at least £975 at Love Your Lifeboat, at the lifeboat house on Saturday (15 February).
The proceeds are still being totted up so the final tally should exceed a grand.
'We had people come from afar just to see our station which shows the hard work behind the scenes really paid off', said one of the organisers, Tabz Nixon.
A constant stream of visitors were shown around the station including both lifeboats and children posed for photos with RNLI mascot Stormy Stan.
