The Youghal Lifeboat are currently fund raising for new lifejackets and were delighted to accept a cheque of €122,58 towards the appeal from the students and staff of East Cork Youthreach. The students from the Leaving Cert Applied course held a fun fundraiser ‘rollaway’ cookery morning at the school and donated the money raised at this event to the Youghal RNLI. Crew volunteers from Youghal RNLI Eric Brooks and Patsy O’Mahony gave the students and staff a guided tour of the lifeboat station on Wed 27th June 2012 before accepted the cheque on behalf of the appeal.

It operates on a full-time, year-round basis. Management of the programme YOUTHREACH is funded by the Exchequer under the National Development Plan. It is a joint programme between two Government Departments – Education & Science and Enterprise, Trade and Employment. Management is through an Inter-Departmental Committee.
