Oban’s lifeboat seek­ing new crew

- Volunteering · Society · Oban

The team at Oban RNLI is look­ing for vol­un­teers who live or work within 10 min­utes of the lifeboat sta­tion to join the crew.

Those in­ter­ested are in­vited to a re­cruit­ment open evening from 7-9pm at Oban Lifeboat Sta­tion on Mon­day Novem­ber 25.

The lifeboat launched 54 times in 2018, aid­ing 97 peo­ple.

Sta­tion coxswain, Ally Cerexhe, said: “Vol­un­teer­ing with us gives peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to make a real dif­fer­ence in their lo­cal com­mu­nity, to save lives and be­come part of the larger RNLI fam­ily.

“We can’t keep peo­ple safe with­out the sup­port of our won­der­ful vol­un­teers, who truly make a dif­fer­ence ev­ery day, no mat­ter which role they are ful­fill­ing.

“We’re look­ing for en­thu­si­as­tic peo­ple aged be­tween 17 and 55, who can com­mit to train­ing, live or work within 10 min­utes of Oban lifeboat sta­tion, and have the per­sonal cir­cum­stances or a com­pas­sion­ate em­ployer that would al­low them to re­spond to ser­vice calls.”
