Bridlington RNLI Ball postponed

Bridlington lifeboats first summer ball, which had been due to take place at the Spa on Saturday 19th July.

Crew members Jamie and Andy Webber and their entertainment business Yorkshire Coast Entertainment were making all arrangements for the event including two groups and a dinner.

A spokesman for Bridlington lifeboat said: “We are truly sorry to have to cancel the ball at such short notice but events have caught up with us. Jamie and Andy both crew members on the lifeboat have put an immense amount of work into this.

“The last two months have been very busy for the crews and the station’s management group with call outs for both boats several fund raising events and meetings regarding a new boathouse on the sea front. The result of this is we are all volunteers and just have not been able to help as much as we would have liked.

“But the future is bright for Bridlington lifeboat and we hope to announce some exciting news in the near future.”

Jamie Webber has already stated refunding those who have bought tickets and will be in touch with the people who donated prizes.

If anyone has any free time and would like to collect for the RNLI or help with fund raising ideas please contact Hannah Garnett on 07557191864.
