Heatherdale supports RNLI
Heatherdale Residential Home, Broomhill, has helped raise funds for the lifeboats at Amble. They held a Fish and Chip supper evening, organised by residents, families and friends. The Quayside Fish and Chip Shop helped by providing fish and chips at a reduced rate.
At the evening supper which included a raffle, the village choir from Warkworth provided entertainment. The magnificent amount of £200 for Amble RNLI Lifeboats was raised.
Our attached photo shows Heatherdale manager Allison Moore and day care resident Tom Crozier presenting the £200 cheque to the Amble Lifeboat Operation Manager Rodney Burge.
Tom Crozier had been a volunteer lifeboat man at Amble for 30 years and during that time was Assistant mechanic to the lifeboats and served with three different classes of lifeboat and was therefore present at many a rescue .
After the presentation of the cheque the residents were shown some videos of the Amble Lifeboats in action, including one in which Tom was a member of the crew.
