"We’re delighted that the William Riley is coming to Carlisle. It will provide a unique opportunity to see one of the classic lifeboats of its time, a great experience for the whole family to enjoy.
"I hope that people come along to say “hello” and also pop any spare change into one of our collection buckets!
"I’m very grateful to Whitby Historic Lifeboat Trust and to Carlisle City Council for making this special visit possible and for helping us to raise vital funds to enable our volunteer lifeboat crews and flood rescue teams to continue with their lifesaving work."
