A plea for volunteers has been issued by the RNLI shop in Beer. 

With the lifesaving charity gearing up for a busy summer, the team in Beer is looking for a shop manager and volunteers to help the RNLI raise funds for its picturesque location. 

The Shop Manager would be recruiting and coordinating other volunteers, training them in operating the till and card machine, and championing the RNLI. Shop volunteers interact with customers, provide a high level of customer service, and ensure that the shop is a friendly and welcoming place. 

Gemma Baker, RNLI community manager, said: “Our shops are incredibly important to the RNLI.  

“Not only do they raise much needed funds for lifesaving, they are also at the heart of coastal communities.  

“Every conversation our volunteers have with customers contributes to lifesaving by raising money, sharing water safety knowledge or inspiring the next generation of lifeboat crew.”
