Plymouth RNLI is looking for Fundraising Volunteers!
Can you help support the Plymouth Branch of the RNLI? Could you spare some time to help our fund raising work? You could choose from helping at fund raising events, help in the RNLI shop, emptying collection boxes, or even running your own event with friends and family.
If you think you could help please pass your contact details to our Chairman, Dave Lister, through Plymouth Lifeboat Station ([email protected]), our shop in Southside Street, Plymouth Barbican, or phone 07553080231.
Plymouth is home to two lifeboats, the larger All Weather Lifeboat, named Sybil Mullen Glover and the smaller but faster Inshore Lifeboat, named Millenium Forester. Based in Millbay Marina, both lifeboats provide cover 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the Port of Plymouth, including the rivers Tamar, Lyhner, Tavy, Plym, Yealm and Erme; and the surrounding coastline into both Bigbury and Whitsand Bays.
Plymouth Lifeboat Station is part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which is funded entirely by donations.
