New Brighton RNLI Crew

RNLI crew members and fundraising volunteers attended Morrisons, New Brighton on Friday 6 December where they collected over £888 pounds in donations from shoppers and customers.

Crew were present in full kit and it was great to see so many people supporting the RNLI despite the poor weather conditions on the day.

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.
