Face-to-face fundraising in south-central England

From the sheltered, sandy bay of Weymouth to the seafront greenery of Littlehampton, south-central is a perfect mix of a thriving city and the relaxed English Rivera.

Boscombe Beach in Dorset

This location is perfect for those looking to combine the fast-paced pulse of the city with the laid-back atmosphere of the English Riviera.

If you've always wanted to try surfing or sailing, now's the time! Or maybe you'd rather chill out on the beach, practice your serve in beach volleyball or take a coastal walk to catch a glimpse of the spectacular coastline. You can also enjoy the benefits of south-central's cosmopolitan culture, from shopping destinations and excellent restaurants to adventure parks and museums.

You'll find several lifeboat stations and lifeguarded beaches scattered across the stunning stretch of coastline in south-central - not to mention RNLI Headquarters in Poole, Dorset, home to RNLI College and the newly developed All-weather Lifeboat Centre (ALC).

If you work in south-central, you'll have the opportunity to represent us at some fantastic events - from the Bournemouth Air Festival to Cowes Week. And there will always be time to catch up with your team at the RNLI Slipway Bar, after an exciting day of speaking to new supporters and inspiring them with stories of dramatic rescues and daring heroes.

Our team have been fundraising in this area since 2008, generating vital lifesaving funds - and we'd love you to join us this year.

Will you stand with us?

Our brave volunteer crews are still on call, 24/7, despite the global pandemic. We urgently need you to stand with us in these uncertain times so they can continue to be there for you, your loved ones and everyone who needs them.
