Macduff RNLI lifeboat station seeking media volunteer

By Kyle Ritchie

The RNLI’s Lifeboat Station in Macduff is looking for a volunteer to join the existing team in the role of deputy lifeboat press officer.

The station operates an inshore B class Atlantic 85 lifeboat. The launch systems for this are unique as it is launched from a mobile crane.

It is crewed by volunteers, funded by public donations and answers the call of help day or night whatever the weather.

Ahead of the charity’s 200th year, Macduff RNLI is looking for a deputy lifeboat press officer to help save lives at sea by raising awareness of the RNLI.

This will be done by promoting the activity of the lifeboat station, highlighting the lifesaving work of volunteers and sharing key messages via local, digital and social media.

Working alongside a trained and experienced lifeboat press officer, the volunteer will build and maintain friendly relationships with local press, radio, television and online media, keeping the community informed of operational activity and lifeboat station events.

A RNLI spokeswoman said: "This is an excellent opportunity to join a motivated and enthusiastic local team and have the satisfaction of helping save lives at sea.
