By taking part, you’re helping make rescues like this happen

When a woman fell on rocks and broke her ankle, she relied on the local lifeboat crew to rescue her. But she was not easy to reach. The crew had to stop the engine and drag the lifeboat over submerged rocks to avoid damaging the propeller.

‘You train to stay calm in situations like this and focus on the task in hand,’ says Crew Member Leah, who helped get the woman ready for winching up into the helicopter. The funds you raise this Mayday will ensure crew members like Leah are ready for whatever this summer brings.
