All the Members of Caister Lifeboat are volunteers who give their services free, without any form of remuneration. This enables all the money that is donated to Caister Volunteer Lifeboat Service to go directly to the lifesaving operation. Fund Raising events take place throughout the year, whilst many other organisations organise events and other activities to fund raise for the lifeboat. Caister also has two separate branches at Beccles and Wymondham which operate independently to support the lifeboat.

If you and your organisation would like to assist us or have any fund raising ideas please contact the Chairman and crew member of the Caister Lifeboat, Paul Garrod, who will be pleased to deal with your request or forward details to the appropriate person in our organisation. Call 01493 722001 or e-mail

Caister Lifeboat was paged by Humber Coastguard yesterday at 17:58 to assist a yacht which was taking on a small amount of water and diesel leaking in the engine bay / cabin compartment just off Sea Palling. Sea Palling Lifeboat were also paged to the incident. 2 of our crew members boarded the vessel with pumps, to give any medical assistance and take the helm of the yacht during the tow from Sea Palling to Great Yarmouth Harbour. 3 people on board and 1 dog. 1 casualty was treated for sickness due to diesel fumes. We were greeted by HM Coastguard Gorleston patrol officers who assisted in mooring the vessel alongside the quay at Great Yarmouth town hall. With nowhere to stay, our chairman Paul Garrod offered them a night at the Furzedown Hotel... on air-beds in the TV room as the hotel was fully booked.
