Training is essential to bringing our volunteer crews home safe

Thank you

The Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Norfolk, which supported the RNLI, has raised an incredible £1.4 million to help save lives at sea.

This phenomenal amount could equip 1,000 new lifeboat crew members with the essential training that turns ordinary people into extraordinary lifesavers.

Thank you to everyone who helped raise this money by entering the draw. You are all lifesavers too.

Happy to support ‘a worthy cause’

Daren, an ex-Paratrooper and former skydiver, is on cloud nine after scooping the Grand Prize in the Omaze Norfolk House Draw. He celebrated by going to his local pub and getting a round in.

Daren’s winning entry came from his monthly £10 Omaze subscription. ‘If I hadn't won, I was happy knowing I was supporting a worthy cause,’ he says. ‘I’m so chuffed that the money raised from this Omaze draw is going to help the RNLI. I live nearby an RNLI [lifeboat] station in Bournemouth so appreciate the lifesaving work they do.’
