The Big Christmas Rescue book

RNLI wins award for well-loved children’s book

More than 23,000 children have read the RNLI’s Big Christmas Rescue – a personalised story book that makes the reader the star of an adventure in which they help save Santa. And now, shortly after the charity’s 200th birthday, the RNLI has received a surprise present: a winner’s trophy for Best Children’s Publication in the 2024 Cultural Enterprises Awards. 

The RNLI faced tough competition from other brilliant books for children, but judges crowned the Big Christmas Rescue as the winner, describing it as ‘… an excellent way to share the RNLI’s work and values with young audiences (and grown-ups).’
