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 spring

To keep the lifeboat service running, we need a steady stream of volunteers. And new recruits need the best kit, training and support.

Our lifesavers never forget the first time they’re asked to launch. It’s not unusual for some to be apprehensive. But it’s that kit and training that keeps them ready for anything.

In a rescue situation, every second counts. Your kind gift, no matter the size, will help our brave volunteers to bring others home safely. Donate to our fundraising appeal today.
