Jack Atkinson

Daytime job: Transport Manager and long distance LGV driver at Atkinson Transport

Joined: June 2018. I've been around water all my life and always wanted to be part of the crew. I have got a ski boat, and have always thought one day I might need rescuing, so it's good to be on-call to help someone who might get into difficulties.

Most rewarding part of Volunteering / service:
Knowing that you're heading out to potentially save someone's life is the most incredible feeling. One of my first shout I was on, was a yacht was taking on water and the crew were overcome with diesel fumes. Going on board, taking control of the vessel under tow, while assuring the crew, including children, was really rewarding.

As an independent Lifeboat we depend entirely on donations
