Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Robert Whitworth (RNLI Lifeboat)
In 1999 loads of people including myself and my 12 year old son, recreated the pull to raise monies for the RNLI, I believe the total exceeded £30,000 and at the same time a documentary was filmed which I don't think has ever been broadcast although I did see the premiere of it at Whitby Pavilion,I think the idea was to enventually make a feature film. The idea for the pull came from Ian Hudson, I don't think he has ever received the recognition he deserved for all his tremendous efforts
I've not heard the above song but another about the Whitby Lifeboat disaster, a completely separate event was written by Sue Haithwaite and is a superb song
