Lifeboat Fundraising Organisation – Volunteers
The RNLI Torbay Lifeboat Fundraising Team (TLF) work throughout the year to raise funds to support the RNLI and the two Torbay lifeboats, which serve all 3 towns within Torbay -Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. An ALB Station costs in excess of £215,000 a year to run so TLF’s fundraising is vital to support RNLI operations. Our local Fundraising Team, like most Charities, rely on enthusiastic volunteers to raise the funds necessary to maintain and operate our lifeboats. Whilst the RNLI is a National Charity our sea area of Torbay and beyond is among the busier in terms of ‘rescue services’ carried out and therefore we look to the local population to help us maintain this service.To put this into context the annual revenue costs of maintaining our volunteer crew and lifeboats for Torbay is close on £250,000 pa.
COVER THE FLAG: Even if you haven’t been actively involved in our fundraising before, give this event a go. You will have the opportunity to meet and chat to people safely and we only need an hour of your time, although you can volunteer for longer if you want to!

July: 21st; 24th and 31st
August: 1st; 7th to 15th; 21st; 22nd; 28th and 29
Please contact Hazel Wimpress (07523 042398) or Cathy Craig (01803 857106 / 07811 269144) who will assign you to a slot.
To help us meet our TLF fundraising aspirations and in preparation for when we are back to a full fundraising programme, we are looking for additional volunteers to join our team in the following roles……
