The RNLI is recruiting volunteer collectors to raise funds for the lifesaving charity as the Tour de Yorkshire passes through Whitby on Sunday May 1.

Areas where collectors are still required include Four Lane Ends, Mayfield Road, Park&Ride, Prospect Hill, Chubb Hill, Victoria Square, the swing bridge, New Quay Road/Dock End, Church Street and Green Lane. The crew will take George and Mary Webb, the all-weather lifeboat, into the harbour to greet the cyclists as they pass over the swing bridge. Coxswain Mike Russell said: ‘Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to collect so far, the RNLI relies on donations to keep saving lives at sea, they all contribute towards running costs and vital equipment.”
