Fundraising & Events Team

You don't have to wear a life jacket to help save lives

It costs around £20,000 per year to keep York Rescue Boat saving lives, and our lifeboat crews need your help.

We’ll provide you with all the necessary training and support to carry out your role effectively.
Some of our fundraising volunteers have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months - whatever their commitments allow.

As a volunteer you will:


  • Meet new people

  • Learn new skills

  • Give back to your community

  • Boost your CV

  • Help plan, organise and run events

  • Help seek new avenues of fundraising

  • Help spread our teams water safety message

  • Help the team continue to save lives

No experience is necessary although volunteers must be aged 18 or over.
