Porsche fund-raisers pop into Seahouses lifeboat fete
Hundreds of people headed to Seahouses on Bank Holiday Monday for its annual lifeboat fete and family fun day.
The attendance was slightly down on last year which means the final figure raised is also likely to be a little lower. The sum is yet to be finalised, but is still predicted to be in excess of £7,000.
Seahouses RNLI has expressed thanks to all who contributed and the volunteers who worked so hard on the day.
The station was also visited by the Porsche 911 Fund Raising Project, where a couple were attempting to visit all 236 lifeboat stations around the UK and Republic of Ireland Coastline in 911 days. The car was sponsored by Porsche UK of London. It just so happened, the day to visit Seahouses, after Craster and Amble, was during the Fete.
They asked the station for a piece of rope with a knot, to be added to a length of rope with a knot from every station visited, and a personal message to go on a postcard to Porsche UK from the station.
The car also visited Berwick lifeboat station later in the day.
