Please note: this is a nicely done and humorous Geordie parody and “of course” no such appeal exists 😛 –  however, coats and jackets can be donated to the numerous charity shops on nearly every High Street throughout Geordieland (and of course in nearby Darlington).

 

Cullercoats Bay & Blue Flag Beach in North Tyneside

Cullercoats Bay is a small blue flag sandy bay popular with geordie families featuring caves nestled in the surrounding cliffs in the centre of the bay which was in times gone by a thriving fishing harbour providing shelter for more than 150 fishing boats.
 
The bay is also home to the RNLI lifeboat station which still plays an active part in this small North Tyneside seaside community.
