On Saturday, 10th June 2017, again our loyal and dedicated volunteers enjoyed another store collection, this time the local Withernsea Aldi Store. They raised a fantastic £280.08. Well done.
But if that wasn’t enough, the dedicated Hornsea Ladies, held a small morning collection on the Saturday 17th June 2017 and raised a brilliant £161.60.
On Sunday 18th June 2017, Hull held it’s annual 10K race, but two entries was a little bit different, firstly they just happened to be members of the RNLI Withernsea Crew, Darren Hickey and Matthew Woodhouse. Instead of wearing normal running gear, these two brave souls decided to wear their full RNLI kit.
Imagine what it would be like running in that outfit, but to make matters worse, remember the weather on the Sunday 18th June, yes! temperatures peaked at 30 degrees. So would have wilted in that weather, but good for you! You achieved it and were awarded your medals. So far they have raised £500, but when all the monies have been received, are hoping the final figure to be in excess of £1,000.

On a final note, it is with regret that our RNLI Humber and Holderness Treasurer Sue Thompson passed away on the Saturday 10th June, and was cremated on Tuesday 27th June 2017, at Hallemprice Crematorium, Willerby.
She will be sadly missed by the RNLI Humber and Holderness Committee and Supporters.
