Meet our fundraising volunteers

To operate a professional 24-hour search and rescue service at 238 lifeboat stations - and do all the other work we do – we must raise almost £180 million every year.

Around 20,000 community fundraising volunteers - at RNLI branches, guilds and other fundraising groups, and in RNLI shops and visitor centres - raise much-needed funds. People who can’t make a regular commitment help out when they can, or raise money through taking part in sponsored events.

Ready to join our fundraisers? Whether you're looking for the perfect idea or need a hand planning and promoting your activity, we've got everything you'll need to smash your fundraising targets and help save lives at sea.
