WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE RNLI AND HOW WE SAVE LIVES?
If your organisation would like to know more about the RNLI, how it operates and how we save lives, why not book a Presentation? We will happily provide a talk, and powerpoint presentation with videos, to outline in detail the work undertaken by the RNLI – at home and internationally. These Presentations are totally free and without any obligation, and can be provided either during the day or in the evening.
Please email us to arrange a suitable date and venue – we provide everything (but it would be nice if you provided a cup of coffee!!)
YOUTH & SCHOOL EDUCATION PRESENTATIONS
The RNLI is committed to saving lives at sea by raising awareness of the RNLI and communicating water safety messages to young people.
Presentations by Youth Education Volunteers are provided totally free of charge to schools and youth organisations, and these presentations provide a valuable insight into how the RNLI works, both at sea and inland, and has valuable water safety messages for everyone.
Our Branch has 2 approved RNLI Community and Youth Education Volunteers, and they would be pleased to arrange a suitable presentation to suit your school or organisation.

Hebden Bridge Rotary President presented a cheque of £2000 to the RNLI representative, of Honley and Brockholes.
After dinner, our representative gave a brief talk on saving lives at sea, dating back to 1777, when the first unsinkable boat was designed, following up with a brief history of the RNLI from its formation on the 4th March 1824, as the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwrecks (shortly afterwards being granted the ‘Royal’ prefix by King George 4th), to its name change on the 5th October 1854, when it became the RNLI as we know it.
