In total 19 medals were presented to our Coxswain, lifeboat crew and shore crew who have completed more than five years as an RNLI volunteer.

As a token of thanks, 4,500 Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) volunteers and frontline staff are to be awarded a special commemorative Platinum Jubilee medal in recognition of the 65,886 lives the charity has saved during Her Majesty’s 70-year reign.

RNLI Chief Executive Mark Dowie said: ‘I am delighted to see so many RNLI volunteers and staff being recognised by this prestigious award alongside other frontline members of the emergency services, prison services and the Armed Forces.

‘The Platinum Jubilee medal follows a long history of awarding medals to mark Royal Jubilee celebrations, and this is the fourth medal under Her Majesty The Queen’s reign.

‘It is a testament to the selflessness and dependability of our people that many have served the RNLI long enough to have been awarded all four Jubilee medals.

‘My congratulations and thanks go to all the recipients and our thousands of other volunteers and staff who work tirelessly to deliver our essential lifesaving services in our mission to save every one.’
