Fethard lifeboat Open Day

By Dan Walsh

Fethard RNLI station will host an Open Day from 11am to 1pm on Saturday where everybody is welcome and the station is keen to recruit new volunteer lifeboat, shore crew and to enhance its fundraising crew.

Walter Foley, Fethard RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said the team is looking forward to welcoming anyone who is interested in finding out more to the open day: “Volunteering with us gives people the opportunity to make a real difference in their local community, to save lives and become part of the larger RNLI family. We can’t keep people safe without the support of our wonderful volunteers, who truly make a difference every day no matter which role they are fulfilling.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic people to come along on Saturday morning and see what is involved and learn how they can play their part. The RNLI provides first class training and equipment, guidance and support to all volunteers, from lifeboat crew to shore crew to fundraising crew. So, no matter the time or the skill you can offer, it is our hope that this can be the beginning of something exciting for new volunteers while also allowing Fethard RNLI to continue its great work in saving lives at sea.”
