Anna Needham, Bridlington RNLI volunteer who is the lead on this event said: “2024 is a wonderful milestone for us to reach, the RNLI would not have been successful for the past 200 years without the many volunteers since the organisation was formed in 1824.

“In our bicentenary year we now look forward to inspire our next generation of crew.”
