Final fundraising golf day a success

On behalf of the organisers of Tynemouth RNLI Golf Day, we would like to sincerely thank all those people who were kind enough to support our event on September 25 by offering financial support, entering teams, donating prizes or giving their time to make the event both successful and enjoyable.

Once again the event was hosted by Tynemouth Golf Club, who made us most welcome and, despite disappointing weather, an excellent day was had by all who took part.

The amount raised this year was in excess of £8,100, bringing the total raised in aid of the Tynemouth lifeboat over the last 13 years to over £122,000.

We have had a huge amount of satisfaction over the years helping to raise money for this worthy cause, however, all good things must come to an end and it is with mixed feelings that we have decided that this is the last time we will be organising this event. It was great fun whilst it lasted.

Should anyone wish to take the golf day forward we will be more than happy to act in a consultancy role and help in any way we can.

The RNLI is funded entirely by voluntary contributions and we as organisers are very grateful to all those who were involved in the day.
