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.

A very stylish, thought provoking sculpture clearly illustrating the great service the RNLI provide in saving those in peril on the water. Should not be missed by any traveller to Poole.

The RNLI Memorial Sculpture can be found on West Quay Road, just outside the RNLI College. Is is a though provoking sculpture which symbolises the power and strength of the water, the lives lost and saved and the work carried out by the RNLI. It is well worth taking the time to walk and find this Sculpture. There is also... More

A beautiful sculpture sadly hidden away in the back streets of Poole outside the RNLI building where very few people can find it and see it, it's worth a wonder to find it, a very thoughtful piece of sculptured art

Very thought provoking and eye catching memorial to the men who lost their lives over the last 150 years saving those of many other people at risk. Also visited the RNLI college building and had a drink in a lovely bar overlooking the harbour. Very friendly welcome.

Poodles Public art is worthy of a tour in itself but this piece is spectacular and can be seen at the entrance to the RNLI college.

Beautiful sculpture outside the RNLI college. It is modern in style but as it represents someone being rescued in the water it doesn't need a lot of interpretation. It really has been done well, it's in its own well maintained spot and makes you stop and think about the basic function of the RNLI and what it is they do.... More

This sculpture looks very well made and costly, I couldn't help but think did any donations go into this.
