Round Table cash boost for Hartlepool RNLI
The Hartlepool Round Table charity have presented Hartlepool RNLI with a cheque for £2,000 which formed part of the proceeds from the recent Beer Festival that was held at the Borough Hall on the Headland at Hartlepool.
Hartlepool RNLI Coxswain Robbie Maiden said "This is a fantastic donation from the Round Table team who have been tremendous supporters of us for many years. After yet another very busy year this donation is vital to help us provide the service we do to help save lives at sea."
