RNLI mural for Headland pub wall
Mural artist Lewis Dobson of Durham Spray Paints, next project will be an RNLI based theme on the gable end of the 'Ship' pub which is at the corner of Middlegate and Northgate at the Headland, Hartlepool.
Durham based Lewis said "I'm a great supporter of the RNLI so I thought a mural showing the Hartlepool lifeboat heading out to sea on a stormy day would be an eye-catching piece of work and I have also decided to add a QR code to the mural so anyone can donate to the RNLI this way.
Alan Hay landlord of the Ship said "I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished result. I'm sure it will be an impressive work of art".
To support the RNLI whilst work is underway on the mural Lewis has opened a JustGiving page where people can make a donation to the charity.
