ON November 17, 1961, the Cullercoats and Whitley Bay branch of the Lifeboat Ladies Guild was formed to support the Cullercoats Lifeboat.
Fifty years on the guild is still going strong and over the years has raised thousands of pounds.
This has only been achieved by the hard work and dedication of the Ladies Lifeboat Guild committee members and the many regular and loyal supporters who have turned up, year in and year out, to help with the various fundraising events and activities.
To mark this special occasion, the guild is holding a birthday tea on Wednesday, November 16.
We would like to invite any past committee members and long-term supporters who we have been unable to contact to get in touch with Pat Maddison on (0191) 253 2658 or Ann Gilmour on (0191) 253 0071 for further details about the event.
