Each year Withernsea Inshore Lifeboat and Coastguards from Withernsea and Easington perform essential safety cover for the Boxing Day Dip held at the resort.

By way of appreciation, Lifeboat Operations manager, Martin Woodhouse and Coastguard Association chairman Terry Bearpark were presented with cheques for £200 for their respective organisations. “We enjoy looking after the safety of the swimmers,” said Martin, “It is a pleasure to be able to help those who do the dip for charity.”

WITHERNSEA AND DISTRICT LIONS warmly welcome another local business accepting a collection point for much needed used spectacles and hearing aids.

Mr Pawel Stawick, manager at Boots, small branch, in Queen Street, Withernsea, kindly offered to help by finding space for a spectacles collection container.

Within the community we collect and recycle old spectacles, supporting Sight first II. Collection boxes can be found at Withernsea Health Centre and The Hospital or glasses and hearing aids can be left at the shop in QueenStreet.

Message in a bottle packs are available from the Lion’s shop.

The Club supports many local groups e.g.  Withernsea Inshore Lifeboat; The Coastguard; Withernsea Fire service.
