• Gaining an understanding of the work of the RNLI and being a positive ambassador and advocate for the RNLI
• Encouraging and welcoming a diverse group of new members/supporters into the RNLI who can also become involved with events throughout the year.

No matter how big or small your contribution is, you will be a lifesaver for the RNLI.
