Alan Forrester, volunteer lifeboat operations manager at Flint says:
‘When the charity’s annual rescue figures are published, it’s always a sobering reminder of what our RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews do at a moment’s notice – in order to help someone in difficulty at sea’.
The RNLI’s Mayday national fundraiser begins on Wednesday 1 May and will run for the whole month, at hundreds of locations across the UK and Ireland. This year, the RNLI hopes to raise a total of £700,000 through Mayday, which will be used to fund essential kit for the charity’s selfless volunteer lifeboat crews.Spotted something? Got a story?
