RNLI Pwllheli is seeking new volunteers
The charity which saves lives at sea is dependent on volunteers and RNLI Pwllheli is hoping the local community will respond to its call for help in filling a number of roles within the lifeboat station including lifeboat visits officers, fundraisers, shore crew and chair of the Lifeboat Management Group.

The volunteer recruitment day will be held in the boat hall and refreshments will be served. RNLI volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and to explain more about what’s involved in becoming part of the RNLI.

RNLI Pwllheli Lifeboat Operations Manager, Andy Vowell, said: ‘We are looking forward to welcoming everyone from the local community to the lifeboat station on Saturday where they can chat with our volunteers about joining a dedicated team of people who help in all aspects of saving lives at sea.'
