Bridlington Armed Forces veterans have raised more than £800 for the town mayor’s charities.
Anne Rubery, the wife of Mike Rubery (secretary of the Bridlington Royal Naval Association), presented a cheque for £835 to mayor Liam Dealtry during the first veterans breakfast club of the year at Richies Cafe bar on Princess Mary’s promenade.
The money was raised via raffles and tombolas during coffee mornings which are held twice a week.
Mr Rubery said: “The money was raised from the raffles and tombolas from the meetings during 2021.
