Ford sponsors RNLI 200th Anniversary Connecting Our Communities event

Get ready for our exciting relay-style event, Connecting our Communities, to mark the RNLI’s 200th anniversary. With Ford as our partner, we’re transporting a special scroll far and wide in an all-electric Ford E-Transit, bringing RNLI communities together for this extraordinary moment in our lifesaving history.

On this scroll is the RNLI’s One Crew pledge, in which we promise our commitment to saving everyone we can, without judgment – staying true to Sir William Hillary’s vision when he founded the charity in 1824. As our partner, Ford has supplied a specially designed all-electric E-Transit van to transport the scroll from one RNLI community to the next.
