First Aid Hut
Ferryside Lifeboat's annual running costs average around £15,000 every year. However, we also need to raise significantly larger sums for new equipment or a significant replacement.
Right now, there is a need to rebuild our old 'first aid hut' to allow it to store our smaller Inshore Lifeboat.
The existing shed was built in the 1960s and, whilst it's stood the test of time well, recent storms have made it unsafe. Although buildings insurance will contribute to its renewal, we need to relay the concrete slab on which it's built, and to upgrade it to allow us to securely store our smaller lifeboat - a 3.8m inshore boat which is invaluable for inshore rescues at low tides.
