16th November 2021. The volunteer watchkeepers from the National Coastwatch Institution station on the Great Orme have received a very welcome donation from the Co-op.

At the beginning of the year, NCI Great Orme was chosen as one of three local good causes to benefit from the Co-op Community fund. This weekend the station received a cheque for £2298.28, which was the largest of the share of the fund which had been raised throughout the year. NCI Great Orme were also able to have a stand outside the Co-op. Station Manager John Humberstone said “We also collected a substantial amount of donations and gave out loads of information about the NCI and a few application forms. All in all this was a very successful conclusion to our year as one of the Coop Local Community Fund good causes”..

Currently 57 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
