Volunteers & Membership

Volunteer Help

We are always looking for volunteers to help on BOTH sides of the Charity.

There is a constant need for help in Fund Raising, and anyone who is able to give some time in helping will be most welcome. There are always different Fund Raising Events and we are constantly looking at different ways of achieving this. We look at trying to raise around £15,000 each year to cover upkeep and running costs.  Anyone who is able to give us some of their time, please contact Tony Elgar Tel. No 01202 849325.

We are always grateful for any volunteers to help crew Dolphin; one does not necessarily need a knowledge of the sea. Also for skippers, who would need to have a knowledge of boat handling and seamanship.   

Anyone who is able to help please contact Tony Elgar Tel. No. 01202 849325 and Steve Quinlan on 01202 982177.


We are always pleased to accept enquiries for Associate Membership of the Friends of Dolphin. Register with us for £10 per year for a single person or £15 for a couple.  Both membership and donations can be paid in conjunction with Gift Aid (if you are a taxpayer). This allows us to reclaim the tax on that sum (£2.80 on every £10.00). 

Membership may also be paid by Standing Order.  All you need to do is to contact Bob Irwin on 01258 857806, and he will be pleased to send you the forms for you to complete and return.
