Become a supporter of NCI Hornsea
“Help us to keep your coast safe”
The coastwatch team at NCI Hornsea have developed a new initiative, designed to provide an opportunity for those who value our work, and want to be able to provide that support more easily. Over the last twelve months charities of all sorts have experienced a significant fall in income. This is not because people don’t want to support them, but that we have simply had less of an opportunity for any real direct contact with the public. For example, the absence of the many popular local public events that have had to be cancelled or postponed.
NCI supporters are made up of a mix of local citizens and businesses, visitors and tourists. Together they provided the bedrock for the stations annual income.
The NCI Hornsea “supporter’s scheme” has been created to offer an easily accessible opportunity for those who want to help and support the station by providing a contribution towards the running costs of our station. The initiative we have developed is based on supporters being able to “sponsor” our station from a distance and by using the internet if they wish.
We have designed a scheme that is simple for everyone to use and allows our supporters to make a donation of any size to NCI Hornsea. All you have to do is to select the sum you wish to commit, the frequency (a one off or ongoing contribution) and the length of time they wish make that contribution. The options are as follows –
You can contribute either £5, £10, £20 or £50.
You can pay a single sum or an ongoing monthly donation.
How can I make a commitment?
There are a number of ways to join the scheme –

NCI Hornsea watch station is manned 365 days a year by volunteers who give their time freely. It is funded exclusively from charity donations, collections and grants. Our role is to watch over all those who enjoy out beautiful seaside and coastline, as well as those who work on the sea. Our objective is single minded, so please ….. “Help us to keep your coast safe.
One example way that we do this is by providing information to the public about the tide times, flood warnings and local weather reports. This service has just been enhanced with the launch of our new and updated website, which carries all this information and a lot more besides. This has been enhanced by the recent introduction of a new electronic screen at the station that provides this useful safety information 24 hours per day. So when you next walk by, take a look.
In the meantime, a very big thankyou to all of you who have continued giving through our collection boxes, whether in shops or on the gate at the watch station.
As we said earlier, “Help us to keep your coast safe” and join in our supporter scheme.
Andrew Garvey, Station Manager.
