Home fundraising

Thank you so much for your interest in virtual fundraising for the RNLI. At the moment due to Coronavirus we can’t fundraise in the same ways we usually do. The welfare of our volunteers, staff and supporters and maintaining our world-class lifesaving service are our priorities. So here are some great ways you can continue to support the RNLI from the safety of your own home.
