2004 RNLI fund raising at the Tynemouth lifeboat station:

The club put on a display at the Tynemouth lifeboat station on the 26th June as part of the Tynemouth stations annual fund raising day. The inshore lifeboat and a Sea King helicopter provided a great show and over £3,000 was raised by the public.

Our own RNLI fund raising regatta took place over the week end of the 10 th and 11 th July 2004. This was very popular with the crowd who responded very generously. A magnificent total of: £255.30p was raised from public donations and entry fees from club members and from guests from the Tynemouth and South Shields model boat clubs who came to sail.

In 2003 members completed the building of a model of the Tyne Tug "Joffre", started by the late Walter Stabler. The model is now displayed in the Ship and Boat Chandlers shop of Messers William Wright at No.1 Union Street at the North Shields fish Quay.
