Inside the Summer issue

A man desperately clings to his capsized boat in chilly waters. A woman is blown out to sea in her inflatable dinghy. A boy is trapped in 6-foot hole that collapsed on him at the beach. As you’ll read in our latest Lifeboat magazine, they are all true tales that could have ended in tragedy without our lifesavers – and without your generous support. 

Your kindness gives our lifesavers everything they need, including the craft that they depend on and, in some cases, grow to love. That’s certainly the case at Wicklow lifeboat station – our latest issue joins the crew there as they say farewell to the last Tyne class lifeboat in the fleet.

Plus there’s a celebrity interview, the latest news and events near to you, fascinating heritage stories and lots more.
