Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen adds a £2.50 donation to every bill and holds regular fundraising campaigns to support the work of the local RNLI Port Isaac station. We would like to thank all our customers for their continued support for such vital work, saving lives at sea.

On accepting the cheque, Port Isaac Chairman Bob Bulgin BEM, extended sincere thanks to the Nathan and the Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen team for this most significant contribution towards helping to fund the very latest of sea going equipment, stating:

“If we ask our crews to go to sea often in hostile conditions they need the best tools to do the job, with this in mind, Nathan`s team helps us, in no small way, to meet this criteria.”

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
