WE ARE SAD TO SAY THAT DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 PANDEMIC SITUATION AND FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT and RNLI ADVICE AND GUIDANCE, THE LIZARD LIFEBOAT STATION IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE – THIS NOW MEANS UNFORTUNATELY FUTURE PLANNED STATION AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS FOR 2020 HAVE TO BE BE CANCELLED …
You may of course be aware that along with other charities, the RNLI is having to manage a colossal and sudden drop in income due to Lifeboat Stations temporary closures and the cancellation of all fundraising events across the UK – We are all very aware that many other charitable institutions have also been badly affected but if you feel you could help by making a donation, however small, please do go either to the “Due South” or “Donate” tabs on this web site both of which are found under “Forthcoming Events” heading – For helping us to continue to save lives at sea, please accept our very grateful thanks in advance – we simply couldn’t launch without you ….
Please read below the message from The Lizard Lifeboat Chair Dr Chris Cuff …….
“The Lizard Lifeboat Station, with all the members of the crew and volunteers are conscious of the strictures brought about by the current pandemic. As you may be aware, we have had to close our Station to visitors on the advice of the Support Centre in Poole, this advice remains unchanged. We are also aware many supporters like to visit us to support our Station, in particular for some of our regular summer events. Our annual Flag Day and the Big Breakfast are in many calendars and we appreciated the support you have given over recent years. Unfortunately, due to the current advice on social distancing, we have decided to cancel both these events.Our priority is to ensure our Tamar Class Lifeboat RNLB Rose remains ready to go to sea to save lives and we would not wish to jeopardise the operational readiness of Rose. We sincerely hope you understand our decision and look forward to welcoming all to our Station as soon as it is safe to do so”
Dr Chris Cuff, Chair The Lizard Lifeboat Station
The Lizard Lifeboat Service/Call-outs will not be disrupted and R.N.L.B “Rose” will be on call as usual – normal service saving lives at sea will be the order of the day …..
