News Release

  1. News Release
  2. The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is seeking lifesavers in the Huddersfield area. The Honley and Brockholes RNLI Fundraising branch is looking for extra volunteers to join its friendly team.

    Andy Ingham, Vice-Chairman, explained: ‘There’s a saying in the RNLI that you don’t have to get your feet wet to save lives at sea. This is certainly the case for our branch; we might be miles from the coast, but we’ve been raising vital lifesaving funds for the charity for over 90 years.

    ‘We recently marked the 40th anniversary of one of our proudest fundraising achievements in providing an inshore lifeboat to Newbiggin RNLI lifeboat station in Northumberland. This followed a successful Mayor of Kirklees (Cllr Donald White) campaign that was supported by the whole community.

    ‘The lifeboat was named Kirklees and during its service at the station it launched 112 times and saved 75 lives.’

    In a typical year, the small but dedicated team could have a calendar of events which includes activities such as boat and tractor pulls, Gala concerts, agricultural shows, coffee mornings and talks to local community and school groups.

    Andy added: ‘We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to join our team and help us to continue to be able to save lives at sea.

    ‘It’s a great opportunity to put your skills to good use, gain some valuable voluntary experience and have fun and meet new people, regardless of how much or how little time you have to spare.’
