Will you help raise vital funds for the London lifesavers?

London Lifeboat Day is an annual fundraising event to help keep our lifesaving volunteers afloat on the tidal Thames. 

The pandemic has severely impacted our ability to raise funds and we need your support now more than ever. Bucket collecting for London Lifeboat Day always formed a vital part of our income and, as we can’t do that this year, we really need your help. 

Every pound and penny raised at this event will go towards building the new Tower lifeboat station. Their current station is old, cramped and no longer fit for purpose. It lacks proper facilities, and the structure is beyond economical repair, and there is no privacy for vulnerable casualties. Will you join our virtual collection from home to give our volunteers at Tower the new lifeboat station they so urgently need?

By setting up a JustGiving page, you can raise money online safely and can carry on updating and chatting with RNLI supporters – just like the good old days.
