Thousands of pounds has been raised to help fishermen following the tragic death of three men out at sea.

James Noble, Michael Pulpul and Jonito Antonio Junior all died when the fishing vessel Ocean Way sank on November 2, 2014.

It was last heard from about 100 miles east of the Farne Islands.

To remember their lives and thank those who supported her, James’ fiancée Julie Myhill held a charity fund-raising night in May.

The charity night raised £2,464.72 which was split between the Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service (BVRS), which is the nominated charity of RAF SAR Boulmer, who managed to rescue two crewmen, and the Fishermen’s Mission, North Shields.

Julie, from Throckley near Newcastle, said: “James made me so happy and his crew and I 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.”
