Welcome to the RNLI

  • Go H2Only
    for our crew!

    Day after day, our lifeboat volunteers drop everything to save lives out on the water.

    So from 2-12 June we're challenging you to deny the drinks you love and drink nothing but water for just 10 days.

    Can you brave it?

    Take the challenge
    H2Only: Could you deny the drinks you love to help save lives at sea?
  • How to master H2Only

    Does the thought of giving up tea, coffee, wine, beer and soft drinks for 10 whole days bring you out in a sweat?

    Here are five tried-and-tested tips to make your H2Only challenge easier.

  • You don’t have to go it alone!

    Download the H2Only app and it will be your companion throughout your 10 watery days.

    Take on daily challenges. Create teams. And share your H2Only antics!

    What’s more, it’s the first UK charity app to work with the new Apple Watch.
