The RNLI Lifeboat shop in Lowestoft is holding an open day to recruit new volunteers.

The charity is looking to recruit more volunteers for its shop and is opening the doors of the lifeboat station on South Pier this Sunday, January 21 between 10am and noon.

Everyone is invited along to visit and to find out more about the opportunities available, including fundraising roles.

Lifeboat operations manager Paul Carter said: “We have a small team of friendly helpers already in post but are currently looking for additional shop and fundraising volunteers. The coffee morning is a chance for anyone to come along to the lifeboat station and learn more about the roles to be filled, whilst enjoying a cuppa.

“Subject to operational requirements the lifeboat will be around off the pier heads from time to time so that people can see the crew in action.”
