"Thank you to Jill and Colin, helping the community and helping Harwich RNLI"

Harwich Lifeboats - Harwich Lifeboat Station | Jill and Colin.

Jill and Colin West have been making face masks in recent times, selling them in the local community to help in ensuring people can get hold of a mask.

The good work doesn’t stop there, with the proceeds of the sales going to Harwich lifeboat station. So far, they have raised nearly £500 for the station at a time where RNLI fundraising activities as a station have had to be halted.

Jill and Colin are also part of the Harwich RNLI Fundraising team, so they know just how important the fundraising income is to the running of a station.

Face masks are still available to purchase for £2.50 and are available from the Harwich Society ticket office on Ha’Penny Pier, Harwich. If you’re visiting, please be sure to follow any directions and rules that are in place.

As a station we would like to express our sincere thanks to Jill and Colin for their work and also to everyone that has supported their fundraising in purchasing a mask from them. Finally thank you to the Harwich Society for putting arrangements in place to sell masks going forward.

Important update from Harwich RNLI

In order to safeguard the well being of our RNLI volunteers and staff, our visitors, supporters and followers, and importantly to ensure our volunteer crews are able to launch our lifeboats on service, the team here at Harwich RNLI Lifeboat Station took the difficult decision earlier to cancel or postpone upcoming events.

We are also unable to offer visits to the lifeboat station, and following updated guidance, the RNLI shop here at Harwich has also had to close for the time being.

Our priority is to reduce the risk of potential infection to our volunteer crew, ensuring that we can continue saving lives at sea should the pager sound.

We continue to monitor government and RNLI advice, and will let you know via social media when things change. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest information. We will continue to keep you updated wherever possible on what we are doing operationally, we really do appreciate the strong following that we have.

In the meantime please #RespectTheWater and #StaySafe.

Remember if you are in difficulty on the water or see someone else in difficulty, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
