Thank you for all your generous donations from all the volunteers at New Brighton RNLI.
The RNLI are busier than ever, especially around the Christmas period. Donations are down and we need continued funding for equipment, kit and to maintain the lifeboats – so we’re facing our own perfect storm, and are appealing to our supporters and the public to give what they can to help us.
