Co-op Fundraising

The current round of the Co-op Local Community Fund scheme has completed. We are delighted to report that NBHTA received over £1000 thanks to Co-op customers registering to support us. This money will be used for new safety equipment around the harbour.

Our friends and neighbours, the North Berwick RLNI are one of the recipients on the latest round of the Co-op community fund. Hopefully they will be supported as generously as we have been.

Thanks to all that contributed.
