Thank you for choosing to support the RNLI. As a charity, we rely on the kindness and generosity of people like you to power our lifesaving. And right now, we need your support more than ever.
There are countless good charities to support, all with great causes. If you've been looking at how to support charities, we feel privileged and extremely thankful that you have chosen to save lives at sea. Especially during these challenging times for us all.
When coronavirus struck, crew training courses were cancelled. Planned lifeboat maintenance was delayed. Wear and tear on kit and equipment carried on. But still the calls for help kept coming, and we answered every one. This summer RNLI lifesavers need your help more than ever.
This is their busiest time of the year. Last summer, lifeboat crews saved 10 lives every week, on average. This year, with more people enjoying a seaside holiday closer to home, they could be even busier. Will you help RNLI lifesavers answer the call this summer?
