Thank you for choosing to give money to the RNLI. Your kindness and generosity powers our lifesaving and we need your support now more than ever.
Of the countless ways you can make a difference and give money to charity, we're honoured and so very grateful you've chosen to save lives at sea. Especially during one of the toughest times we have all ever faced - a time when we need each other the most.
The health crisis has hit our charity hard, yet our lifeboat volunteers are busier than ever. The drop in our income is expected to be millions - money that would usually help give lifeboat crews everything they need. And now there's the extra cost of essential PPE like face masks and gloves.Nothing could have prepared our volunteers for the pandemic. But they kept on answering the call to rescue, 24/7, ready and willing to launch to the rescue. Now they need your help. To bring hope to the brave volunteers who give up so much to save others.
When the coronavirus struck, training courses were cancelled. Planned lifeboat maintenance was delayed. But still the calls for help kept coming. Wear and tear on kit and equipment carried on. Your kindness will keep us ready, for when we’re needed most.
See below the many different ways you can give money to the RNLI, whether you're looking to donate money to charity or give in other ways. Your kind support will help to keep our lifeboat volunteers trained and equipped to brave the unexpected - and come home safe - which is the best present they, and their families, could receive.
