This is a fantastic opportunity to help the less fortunate in our area and has proven highly successful in previous years.
Hardy Swimmers will plunge into the icy cold North Sea at Boulmer and ask that folk come along to support with an old winter coat or jumper to donate to the homeless.
Crisis collect the clothing and distribute it to the poorest and most needy this xmas.
Everyone’s a winner – you get to create a space in your closet for your new Xmas presents knowing that you’ve given to someone less fortunate Boulmer LifeBoat​ are kindly opening up a room in the lifeboat station where we can go after the swim for soup, a roll, tea & cake.
For just £5 a ticket you’ll get a warm welcome & some lovely homemade food
(Leftover food will also be donated to crisis)
Please come along and support this event.
If you are unable to attend but wish to donate warm clothing to Crisis, please get in touch and I’ll arrange to collect it beforehand

Fishermans Mission Visit

Very glad to welcome Peter Dade from the Fishermans Mission today at the station.

Peter had a cup of tea and a tour round while we discussed the up and coming events in regards to the Ocean Way charity night in remeberance of James Nobel and Crew

Skipper James Noble

Filipino Fishermen, Michael and Jonito:  lost at Sea .

Filipino Fishermen, Romulo and Nixon miraculously survived .

Three lives were lost out of a crew of Five from the Fishing Vessel “Ocean Way” FR 349 when she sunk on 2nd November 2014, 120 miles north of North Shields. The Fishermen’s Mission in North Shields was heavily involved, as was the Fishermen’s Mission in Fraserburgh, from the start to the finish, dealing with the incident and offering welfare, pastoral and financial help and support throughout.



Julie, James’ fiancée says about James:

“He made me so happy and his crew and me were his family. He had just made steps to start a new life here in Newcastle. He was the most kindest, loving man anyone could meet.”

Now to celebrate James’s Birthday on 21 May 2015, Julie is holding a fundraising event on May 22nd. Click here to find out more.

The proceeds of this are to go to the Fishermen’s Mission North Shields and the Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service (BVRS), nominated charity of RAF SAR Boulmer, who were involved in Ocean Way Incident.

You can DONATE now to BVRS or Fishermen’s Mission.
