Attraction details
Owner description: Remembering past sacrifice to inspire future generations. Many brave and selfless RNLI volunteers are remembered proudly in their local communities. However, the RNLI memorial sculpture in Poole is the only place where each and every one of them is named together. The RNLI hopes that future generations of lifeboat crew, lifeguards, supporters and fundraisers will find it a source of inspiration. Ultimately, the memorial reminds us all that there are still people who volunteer to carry out selfless acts of heroism to help others - we will always remember their sacrifice.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

Looks good not sure how it will handle the the weather.
Not easy to park close by and no stopping as on one of the main roads in Poole.
I parked in Asda car park did some shopping and walked over.
I support the RNLI and think they do so much and dont pester you like other charities.

“Somber and Relaxing”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

The RNLI Memorial Sculpture is a great addition to the RNLI area having a perminant memorial to all the RNLI crewman that lost their lives protecting the coast of britian. A perfect statue with all the names of the fallen crew.

“What a marvellous sculpture.”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

This brilliant metal sculpture depicts someone being pulled out of the sea. It also acts as a memorial to those who have lost their lives at sea whilst working for the RNLI
