Story

Our team are excited to announce we have secured planning permission to construct and install a floating pontoon attached to Railway house on the River Ouse in the center of York. The pontoon will house our lifeboat and equipment in a prime location where it can be quickly accessed by the team to assist with emergencies on the river.

We are very fortunate to have been donated a pontoon by the Canal and Rivers Trust who look after the River Ouse, because of their kind donation we are now a huge step further to having a permanent home for our lifeboat. We also have plans to share the pontoon with York Sea Cadets enabling the cadets and leaders to safely access their boats when out training on the river.

We are now seeking to raise around £6500 to help modify the pontoon to our needs and cover the cost of the installation, and we need your help to keep York's Rivers Safe.

Great service that shouldn't have to be used in a popular City

About the charity

York Rescue Boat
York Rescue Boat

York Rescue Boat is an independent search and rescue charity, based in York, North Yorkshire. ​ Founded in 2014 after a series of deaths in the city’s rivers, York Rescue Boat has grown from humble beginnings raising money out of the back of a car, to a highly trained and capable team becoming renowned for its work both in York and further afield. ​ Our work centres around the Rivers Ouse and Foss in York. Uniquely we work to make the city safer by carrying out combined patrols by boat and on foot at high risk times every weekend throughout the year as apposed to just responding to emergency calls. We also cover other times as requested by North Yorkshire Police or other agencies.
