Become a part of our story of kindness

Since our very beginning on 4 March 1824, the RNLI has relied on people like you to save lives. Today, as we mark our 200th anniversary, your support is needed to continue our story of kindness.

Six in 10 lifeboat launches are only possible thanks to gifts in Wills from generous supporters like you. Your legacy could provide training, kit and equipment that RNLI lifesavers need to save lives at sea.

Delia Swift, legacy pledger

‘In gale-force winds, our yacht lost its rudder. I cannot express how frightened we were, and how reassuring it was to hear that Sennen Cove lifeboat crew were on their way. Seeing the beautiful orange lifeboat appear on the horizon, we knew that help was near.

‘My experience is why I’ve decided to leave a gift in my Will to the RNLI. Six in ten lifeboat launches are only possible thanks to gifts in Wills. I take great comfort in knowing my legacy will help those in desperate need of rescue, and help keep safe the brave lifesavers going to their aid.’
