Lifeboat Operations Manager David Williams said: ‘Volunteering with the RNLI gives you the opportunity to make a difference in your local community and to help us save lives at sea. Our charity couldn’t function without the help of our selfless and hardworking volunteers. If you’re interested in learning more about possible opportunities and make a difference in your community, please join us this Sunday at Aberdyfi Lifeboat Station between 10am-12:30pm.

The charity is hoping to attract people from all walks of life and most new recruits don’t need to have sea-going experience to get involved.
