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 this summer

Nothing could have prepared our volunteers for the pandemic. But they have kept on answering calls for help 24/7, ready and willing to launch to the rescue.

Summer is their busiest time - last summer RNLI lifeboat crews saved 10 lives every week, on average. With more families booking holidays in the UK and Ireland this year, this summer could be their busiest ever.

Your kind gift, no matter how large or small, will help to keep our lifesavers trained and equipped. Ready to help those in danger. Ready to respond to any emergency call. Will you answer the crews’ call for help this summer? Donate to our fundraising appeal today.
