Earlier in the summer, just after lockdown restrictions started to lift, our community charity received contact from The Times / Sunday Times.

The newspaper group wanted to talk about our rescue role in the context of the plight of vulnerable persons at sea. This is because, along with other emergency and rescue services, our charity has been involved in multi-agency incidents this year.

Launch authority Steve, who also carries out PLIRB beach safety awareness talks at schools and community groups, was able to take part. Steve met the video producers and journalist down at the boathouse to answer their questions about our work.

The video documentary has now been completed and was released in August 2020.

Whilst you’re here …

As an independent rescue service, we are run by volunteers and fundraise to buy all of our own equipment and to pay our considerable running costs. Since the pandemic began, these costs have risen to over £10,000 a year.

If you like the work we do and would like to support us, your donation would really be appreciated and would, ultimately, help us to help those in danger on our local coastline.

Thank you so much, from the volunteers at Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat.
