Write your simple Will for free and protect lifeboat volunteers like Dan at sea

By writing or updating your simple Will for free*, you can help RNLI lifesavers like Dan stay safe when they launch to rescue in an emergency. When you wake up in your nice warm bed, hear the chilly wind outside and think: ‘I’m glad I’m not out there’ – crew members like him will be, answering the call for help.

Six in ten lifeboat launches are only possible thanks to gifts in Wills. After you’ve looked after your loved ones, will you consider leaving a gift in your Will to the RNLI?

*For more complex Wills, a solicitor will speak to you about any potential costs beforehand, so you won’t suddenly face an unexpected bill.
