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.

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 the drop in our income expected to be millions during one of the toughest challenges all of us have ever faced, right now is one of those times.

You can help bring the crew home safe

The health crisis has hit our charity hard, yet our lifeboat volunteers are busier than ever. The money that would usually help give them everything they need just never came in. And now there's the extra cost of essential PPE like face masks and gloves. 

This Christmas, our volunteer lifeboat crews will be on call 24/7, ready and willing to save lives. Just as they have been throughout the pandemic. They will launch around 100 times, leaving their own loved ones at a moment’s notice to rescue someone else’s. You’re the lifesaver they need to bring each other - and those they rescue - home safe.

Donate to our urgent fundraising appeal today and you’ll be helping to keep our lifeboat volunteers trained and equipped to brave the unexpected - and come home safe. Your kind gift, no matter how much, will be the best Christmas present they, and their families, could receive. Thank you.
