Staithes and Runswick RNLI lifeboat team hold a fundraising weekend in August each year to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
The weekend has a wide range of activities and events for all the family to enjoy.
Traditionally events include the Nightgown Parade through the cobbled streets of Staithes on the eve of the weekend's activities. Then over the weekend there are various events held across both villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes such as lifeboat rescue displays, cliff rescue demonstration by local coastguard teams, raft race for all ages, stalls and games.
On the Saturday evening, there is a firework display following the seafront barbeque.
Sunday brings the famous duck race along Staithes beck and then thanksgiving services are held at Runswick and Staithes.
