Every day is Mayday for us
It could be any day. A birthday, a work day, even Christmas Day. When a mayday call comes in, our volunteer lifeboat crews drop everything to save lives at sea. They depend on their kit to help them save lives - and to bring them home safely.
By getting involved in Mayday you can be a lifesaver too. Get your fundraising pack and everything you need to raise money for the RNLI.
One important piece of kit you’ll be helping fund is the crews’ yellow wellies. Mayday fundraisers around the UK and Ireland are taking inspiration from this fun but practical footwear. And from wearing wellies to work to baking up some boot-shaped biscuits, there are so many ways you can get involved.
* Any funds raised over and above our target will go towards funding our lifesaving work around UK and Ireland.
Our target will pay for...
