Community volunteers - to help raise funds for the crew and general running of the boat and station. The RNLI is a charity that saves lives at sea. We do this through lifeboat search and rescue, lifeguards, water safety education and flood rescue. The Barra Lifeboat Station is the heart of the community and is always there when someone needs help, whatever the weather and whenever, you can rely on them 24/7. In order for the lifeboat station to continue to save all lives at sea they need you to volunteer as a community fundraiser. You will be there to help raise money by doing bucket collections, coffee mornings, whatever you think would work in the community to help fund the crew training, their kit, fuel the boat etc. By becoming a fundraising volunteer you will be part of the RNLI family in Barra and will support the crew to continue to save all lives at sea.

Members pay a small fee whenever they visit the pantry where they can pick up to 10 items of food, household essentials, personal products and / or pet food. Depending on availability we may also be able to offer free items which will be over the members allocation.
We do not operate like a food bank where pantry users are only entitled to a small amount of goods for a small period of time. We offer our members a place on the pantry at a cost of only£2.50 per visit. This cost entitles the member to call into the pantry once per week and pick items of shopping. As we are a non-profit group all funds received are reinvested back into the pantry meaning that there is always stock available for all. We offer our members fresh fruit, bread & eggs.

The pantry is open 3 days per week, although volunteers are in the pantry out with these times sorting stock and restocking shelves. We are looking for volunteer commitment of at least 2 hours per week for a minimum term of 6 weeks, this is to enable volunteers to build relationships with our service users.
Scouting is volunteering at its finest. We work in teams to create the best scouting experience possible.
