Give to a special appeal
RNLI charity appeals give you the opportunity to choose a fundraising appeal you'd like to support. They can be fundraising appeals for individual lifeboat stations or certain areas of the RNLI's work. They can help fund specific needs such as crew training, crew kit, rescue equipment, lifeboats, new boathouses and station running costs. Or they can help raise general funds to be spent wherever the need is greatest.
Being a charity, our need for funds is constant. But there are times when that need becomes so great that we launch an urgent fundraising appeal. And, with our income falling during one of the toughest challenges the world has ever faced, right now is one of those times.
You can help us brave the storm
The health crisis has hit our income hard. Lockdown halted the fundraising events we rely on to power our lifesaving service. Yet our lifeboat crews have never stopped being on call 24/7, ready and willing to save lives. They still need protective crew kit and fuel to launch their lifeboats. And their lifeboat stations and lifeboats still need to be maintained and repaired. With your support, they’ll always be ready, right now and in the future.
You can help our lifeboat volunteers brave the storm by donating to our urgent fundraising appeal. Your gift, no matter how much, will make a lifesaving difference. Not only to the people we rescue and their loved ones, but to the crew and their families too.
