YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school hit the high notes after a musical fundraiser boosted the town’s lifeboat service.

The children from Bramcote School made £200 after holding collections during musical events and a carol concert.

The pupils visited the lifeboat station, in Foreshore Road, to handover a cheque to mechanic Dave Horsley and volunteer Rudi Barman before enjoying a tour of the building.

They were shown a video of the work that the lifeboat crews carry out and were then given a close-up look at the town’s two boats.

Deputy headteacher Peter Wilkinson said the visit had proved to be a great success.

He added: “The children were keen to hear about the sort of rescues that the Scarborough crew carry out and were especially interested to learn that the vital work of the RNLI is funded entirely by contributions from members of the public such as themselves.

“They are all keen to carry on fundraising for the RNLI so that their important work can continue.”
