RNLI group to fundraise in landlocked Carlisle
A lifeboat group is being set up in a city without a coastline.
Volunteers are being sought for the group in Carlisle, which will raise funds for the RNLI.
Lifeboats played a vital part in rescuing people during floods which devastated the city in 2005.
David Bowen, who has been a member of the Silloth branch for many years described it as "an opportunity to make a real difference and help raise funds for a life-saving charity".
He said: "You don't have to set foot in a boat to help save lives."
In 2014 there were 88 callouts from the four lifeboat stations in the county, rescuing 103 people.
