Thousands of pounds has been raised to help fishermen following the tragic death of three men out at sea.

James Noble, Michael Pulpul and Jonito Antonio Junior all died when their fishing vessel ‘Ocean Way’ sank on November 2, 2014, 120 miles north of North Shields.

James made me so happy and his crew and I were his family.

To remember their lives and thank those who supported her, James’ fiancee Julie Myhill held a charity fundraising night in May.

Julie, of Throckley, said: “James made me so happy and his crew and I were his family. He had just made steps to start a new life here in Newcastle. He was the most kindest, loving man anyone could meet.”

The charity night raised £2,464.72 which was split between the fishermen’s Mission North Shields and the Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service (BVRS), nominated charity of RAF SAR Boulmer, who managed to rescue two crewmen.

Superintendent Peter Dade, of Fishermen’s Mission North Shields, said he was “absolutely delighted” by the amount raised for both the Mission and BVRS and added that “James would have been proud!”
