Filey Lifeboat appeal
Filey lifeboat volunteers are proud of the lifesaving service they offer. They’ve undertaken numerous exercises for over 200 years. Their current D class boat The Braund is now reaching the end of its operational life.
Please help support the next chapter in Filey Lifeboat Station’s history – and help our lifesavers bring a new D class lifeboat home.
Be part of over 200 years of lifesaving history
For generations, volunteers at Filey lifeboat station have been rescuing those in trouble on the Yorkshire coast. In 2018, Filey’s brave and dedicated volunteers launched 28 times to save those in difficulty.
Without a second thought for themselves, Filey’s crews have suffered dangerous weather conditions, including strong winds and tidal waves to ensure visitors and residents of the Yorkshire coast are kept safe.
This bravery has not gone unnoticed as Filey Lifeboat crews have received eight awards for gallantry, with the most recent being in 2004. The RNLI is incredibly proud of the commitment of our crews in Filey who have saved over 400 lives.
What you will help send to sea
Little has changed in the D class’s shape since 1963, but the craft is now made of durable hypalon-coated polyester, and has the best possible technology onboard to aid lifesavers. The latest software on the new Filey lifeboat will help the crew identify passing marine traffic and plan accordingly.
