Councillor Lamb has a long association with the sea so it is no surprise that he chose the RNLI as his charity. He joined the Sea Cadet Corps at the age of 11 and became a Royal Naval Reserve officer at the age of 21. He joined Leigh Sailing Club where he remains a member, after spending two years as vice commodore and three years as commodore. He still owns his own yacht and sails whenever he can.
