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 be the backup our lifesavers depend on

After a relentless summer, our lifeboats, kit and crews have taken a beating. Lifesaving equipment needs maintaining and repairing. And worsening weather will make rescues more challenging.

The coast draws walkers, runners, watersport-lovers and day-trippers all year round – the rescues don’t end when summer does. When someone does need us, we rely on our kit and training – the things that kind people like you help provide.

Will you stand behind our brave volunteers? Donate to our fundraising appeal today.
