Graham welcomes funding for Hornsea Inshore Rescue
Local MP Graham Stuart has praised the life-saving volunteers at Hornsea Inshore Rescue after they received thousands of pounds of funding towards new boats, vehicles and equipment.
Hornsea Inshore Rescue, which has been running in East Yorkshire for nearly 25 years, has been awarded more than £4,000 as part of a Government scheme to support rescue charities across the United Kingdom.
Beverley and Holderness MP, Graham Stuart, said he was delighted Hornsea Inshore Rescue had successfully bid for the money to help continue their life-saving work.
Mr Stuart has been a longstanding supporter of the rescue volunteers, and earlier this year helped their efforts to establish a Coastal Communities Team in Hornsea, with funding and support from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
“For almost 25 years, these dedicated volunteers have been saving countless lives off the coast of Hornsea,” he said.
“Visitors and local residents are indebted to their determination and specialised skills, and I hope this substantial funding can go towards equipment to help them make our coastline even safer for everybody.
“As well as being on hand to provide assistance to those in peril at any time, I know the volunteers also carry out educational sessions to promote safety in our seas and I am delighted the Government has been able to provide this money towards their efforts.
“Of course, Hornsea Inshore Rescue still needs donations from the public and I would urge people to back these volunteers in any way they can, including supporting their JustGiving page and backing their bid for a share of the Aviva Community Fund.”
