RNLI Jersey volunteers recognised for long service

Twenty-seven RNLI Jersey volunteers have been recognised by the RNLI for their long service to the charity which saves lives at sea.

The RNLI recognises long service from volunteers by awarding medals or badges (at the volunteer’s option) for those who have served the charity for 20 years, and any 10 year increments thereafter.

The volunteers, from both the Lifeboat Guild – the fundraising arm of RNLI Jersey – and the operations team were recently been recognised for their long service to the charity.

Nigel Sweeny, Lifeboat Operations Manager for RNLI Jersey (pictured fifth from left), himself recognised for his 40 years’ service, said it was a “tremendous privilege to serve the RNLI with this team”.

He said: “That so many of our volunteers have dedicated so many years to serving this charity is humbling but it shows the passion that we all have for the RNLI.”
