When Filey School changed its name to Ebor Academy, the staff room fund was wound up and teachers decided to donate the remaining amount to Filey RNLI.

A cheque for £1,750 was handed over to crew members Fraser Haddington and Tom Barkley by the new Head of Ebor Academy, Filey, Andrew Galbraith.

John Ward, Lifeboat Press Officer and former Assistant Head at Filey School, said: “There is enough to buy five sets of dry suits for our inshore lifeboat crew.”
