FILEY RNLI BOATHOUSE

Led by Ebor Academy (Filey) Choir, the event which has been organised by Filey Ladies Lifeboat Guild, will be an opportunity to start Christmas on the “right note” and to support Filey Lifeboat at the same time.

There will be a selection of carols old and new; and along with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, it promises to be ideal time for everyone to sing their hearts out: old and young; singers and non-singers; and to make a donation to Filey Lifeboat whose volunteers will be on call throughout the festive period.

John Ward, Lifeboat Press Officer said: “We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible turn out to sing carols in front of the lifeboat and enjoy themselves. All donations go directly to the running of Filey Lifeboat Station.”

Notes to editors

  • Filey Lifeboat Station was founded in 1804. It currently operates both a Mersey-Class All-Weather Lifeboat and an Inshore Lifeboat. To learn more about the lifeboat station go to Filey Lifeboat Station Facebook page.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
