About Humber Rescue

Humber Rescue, are an independent charity that supplies fast response search and rescue operations on the Humber Estuary. The charity covers approximately 540 square miles of water including the River Hull, Trent, Ouse, and the River Humber, and is renowned for being one of the busiest independent lifeboat stations in the UK.

Due to the challenges of the recent global pandemic, Humber Rescue’s fundraising has severely depleted, and the independent charity has since relied heavily on donations from local businesses and the public to keep them afloat. To help, last year Eon Visual Media teamed up with sister company Springfield Solutions to donate 14 brand new helmets so that volunteer crew members can continue operating and saving lives on the Humber Estuary.

Back in 2021, Yusef working with our videography team at Eon Visual Media had the absolute pleasure to collaborate with Humber Rescue to produce a short promotional video for The Business Day event at Bridlington Spa. The premise for the video was to tell the origin and story of Humber Rescue, as well as showcase the incredible work carried out by volunteers.  Yusef as well as been the production director, content producer also is an active member for the Humber Rescue Team. You can watch Yusef’s award-winning documentary ‘Behind the Lifejacket’ below.
