Give to a special appeal

Thank you for choosing to give to one of our charity appeals. Your generosity helps fund everything we need to save lives at sea, and we need your support now more than ever.

You can help save lives during a summer like no other

After the events of the last year and a half, it’s no surprise that many more of us are holidaying at home. But the surge in staycations means that we’re under pressure like never before – all along our coast and rivers.

When our lifesavers are racing from one rescue to the next the days can feel longer in more ways than one. At times like these they rely even more on their world-class training and lifesaving kit – the things that people like you help provide.

Your kind gift could be the backup our crews and lifeguards need now. Donate to our fundraising appeal today.
