Sidmouth Lifeboat is looking for new volunteers to come forward to help man its gift shop.
The charity is recruiting new helpers to give up to four hours a week at the lifeboat station.
Volunteer Brian Diffey says the lifeboat relies heavily on proceeds from the shop, which is run entirely by volunteers, seven days a week.
It is open from 10am to 4pm in winter and to 5pm in summer.
Roland Westlake, who has been a volunteer for four-and-a-half-years, said: “Our support team is the Sidmouth lifeboat’s public face.
You may also want to watch:
“Each day they open up, put out the two ‘dummies’ Sid and Alma, that play a vital role in collecting donations from passers-by.
“During the whole day the duty volunteers will welcome and talk to visitors from all over the UK and beyond.
