The RNLI West Yorkshire Business Branch (formerly the Leeds Business Branch) is a committee of local professionals who volunteer to promote and raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. The funds we raise help to equip and train volunteer lifeboat crews, beach lifeguards, flood rescue teams and enable many other life-saving initiatives.
In 2018 we organised two special events which successfully raised over £10,000 to help fund a new 'D' Class Lifeboat at Withernsea on the Yorkshire coast.
The current Withernsea 'D' Class Inshore Lifeboat (pictured) will shortly be coming to the end of her lifespan.
The money we raised in 2018 will help to fund a new boat which will go into service this year.
