Robin Hood’s Bay Family raise over £3,400 for Society

Posted: 13 November 2019 Posted In: Fundraising

A recent exhibition of maritime paintings was organised by brothers, Ben and Matthew Wedgwood, in memory of their late father, William Wedgwood; a long-time supporter of the Society and keen marine artist who exhibited his work each year at the Old Coastguard Station in Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.

Members of the Wedgwood family have also long looked after – and continue to look after – the Society’s ex-WW11 Collecting Mine sited at Robin Hood’s Bay.

The exhibition generated funds to the value of more than £3,400 for the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society and we are so grateful for this tremendous level of support which will be put to very good use supporting those from the fishing and maritime community who are suffering hardship and distress.

Our sincere thanks to the Wedgwood family for their continued support of this Charity’s work.
