Littlehampton RNLI lifeboat station
The station, on Fisherman’s Quay, is right in the heart of Littlehampton and is run entirely by volunteers from the local community. It is hoping to fill a range of roles, from shop volunteers to boathouse guides.

The roles are:

SHOP VOLUNTEERS - serving customers and sorting stock in our small but busy shop. Regular half-day slots, either weekdays or weekends, are available.

COLLECTION BOX VOLUNTEERS - a few hours a month collecting donation boxes from pubs, shops, clubs and restaurants in the local area. Emptying boxes, counting donations, issuing receipts and keeping in contact with the local establishments.

BOATHOUSE GUIDES - showing visitors round our busy lifeboat station, answering questions and telling visitors about our work.

EVENT VOLUNTEERS - a few hours a month helping out at events in the local area.

Nick White, Lifeboat Operations Manager for Littlehampton RNLI, said: ‘You can help save lives at sea without getting on a lifeboat. Our support team are all volunteers who come from all walks of life and play such an important role at our lifeboat station. Full training will be given for all roles. If you think you can spare a few hours or know someone who can, please do get in touch. It would be great to hear from you.’

If you are interested in any of the roles, or would like to give your time in another way, please contact info@littlehamptonlifeboat.org.uk.
