King Street Volunteers

RNLI/Mike Milner

Bridlington RNLI are looking for volunteers to join them at both Bridlington RNLI shops and as a shop manager in the Bridlington RNLI King Street shop.

You will help save lives at sea by generating vital funds as well as promoting the work of the RNLI to customers and raising awareness of key safety messages.

For many people, buying something from a RNLI shop will be the first time that they come into contact with the charity, and as a shop volunteer/manager you could be the person that engages them to support the RNLI now, and in the future.

On Tuesday 12 April anyone who is interested in any of the roles available is invited to attend a recruitment day between 10am to 2pm where potential volunteers can come and meet Sarah Child, the Senior Community Manager for the North and East Region for an informal chat at the Bridlington King Street shop to find out more.

Sarah said: 'From as little as three hours per week you can help the RNLI to save every one by volunteering in one of our souvenir and retail shops. Volunteers are at the heart of the charity and your support will help make a real difference in the local community.'

Alison who is currently one of the volunteers at the King Street shop in Bridlington and is pictured with Jane stated: 'Even a few hours can help save lives at sea.'
