Grateful for all the donations received

The members and directors of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade (TVLB) would like to thank the many members of the local community who generously supported them during their in-store collection held at Morrisons, Preston Grange, on June 20 and 21.

More than £1,700 was raised for the TVLB, which is a huge contribution towards our annual fundraising target and will also help us as we fundraise for a new rescue vehicle to replace our Land Rover, which has been in service for more than 13 years.

The TVLB relies entirely on voluntary contributions to maintain our coastal rescue team and we are well aware of, and extremely humbled by, the continuous support we receive from the general public, particularly those living within the North Tyneside area.

Thank you.

Peter Lilley

Captain and Press Officer
