Mayday 2019

What is Mayday?

Mayday is our yellow-themed annual fundraising campaign, which runs from 1-31 May. It’s a celebration of our volunteer lifeboat crews, who are on call 24 hours a day, every day, to save lives at sea.

However you helped to raise money, we’d like to say a huge thank you. Every penny you’ve donated will help to fund the vital kit that keeps our crews safe. So on behalf of all of our lifesavers, and the people they rescue every year, thank you for taking part!

We’ll be back for 2020 – stay tuned for more information coming soon.

Why kit matters

When our brave volunteer crews answer the call for help, they don’t know what they’ll be facing. Huge waves, storms, darkness. They need to be prepared for anything. Having the right kit can mean the difference between life and death for them and the people they rescue.
