Lifeboat to host Harbour Day

Hundreds of people are expected to attend an annual fundraising event for a lifeboat crew.

Cullercoats RNLI Lifeboat is hosting its Harbour Day on Saturday, June 27, at 11am at Cullercoats Bay.

The event is seen as the main fundraising activity for the lifeboat, with a host of activities lined up.

There will be a grand raffle, prizes, stalls, live music, kayak taster sessions, bouncy castle, refreshments and more.

There will be a lifeboat display and a demonstration by Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade, plus appearances by the search and rescue helicopter and Northumbria Police helicopter, operations permitting.

Subject to bad weather, activities will relocate to Cullercoats Community Centre.
