Volunteers Wanted

RNLI Bridlington

Could you help RNLI Bridlington to save lives at sea? Since 1805 a lifeboat has been stationed at Bridlington, with the first RNLI boat stationed in the town in 1852. Since then, the crew of Bridlington have won 16 medals, 11 Silver and five Bronze, the last being voted in 2000. This could be your chance to join the current volunteer crew and be part of the future.

Bridlington RNLI is recruiting for volunteer Deputy Launch Authorities, All Weather Lifeboat Crew, Inshore Lifeboat Crew and Shore Crew. We are also looking for volunteers for non-operational roles i.e. fundraising, education, shops, water safety, visits, etc. This is great opportunity to make a difference, meet new people and be part of a team to help save lives at sea.

If this is something you feel you could be interested in, then please get in touch or come along to the Lifeboat Station for a chat, meet some of the current volunteers and get a feel for what the volunteers do. Thereafter, we would invite potential volunteers to submit an application.

If you feel you have something to offer us, please get in touch. This could be the start of an exciting 2023 and be part of helping us continue to save lives at sea.
