Amble RNLI volunteers have made their very own call for help after launching a massive £200,000 fund-raising appeal towards the cost of a new lifeboat.

In 2017, its current all-weather Mersey-class vessel, The Four Boys, will be nearing the end of her operational life and is set to be replaced by the newest member of the RNLI fleet, a £2million state-of-the-art Shannon.

Amble will be one of the first of the charity’s lifeboat stations in the north of England to receive this class of lifeboat, which is the smallest, most agile all-weather lifeboat in the RNLI fleet.
