Fundraising coffee mornings held by this year’s Jam Jar Army beneficiary continue to boost the coffers of the lifeboat project.

The Amble Lifeboat Fundraisers (ALF) are trying to raise £200,000 to bring a state-of-the-art Shannon-class lifeboat to the harbour town and are currently well past the £50,000 mark.

ALF held another coffee morning last Sunday, which brought in £481.

The events take place every month on the third Sunday and those attending are taking jam jars away with them and returning the next time with full jars.

There are a number of drop-off points for full jars in Alnwick and Amble.
