Give it some welly this Mayday

Mayday 2019 has begun!

People wearing crew kit

RNLI staff, volunteers and members of the public are turning their offices, shops and lifeboat stations yellow today to mark the start of our annual yellow-themed fundraiser.

Last year we raised a grand total of £667,307 to help fund our crews’ kit. Let’s see if we can do even better this year and smash our £700,000/€780,000 target. Visit our Mayday pages to find out how you can get involved.

You can also show your support for Mayday this year by joining in our virtual Yellow Welly Relay! Join crew, staff, volunteers and ambassadors by simply sharing a photo or video of you and your wellies on social media to help spread the fundraising message. We’ve already posted some examples – join in the fun using the hashtag #YellowWellyRelay and don’t forget to tag us using @RNLI.

Thank you so much for taking part in Mayday and helping us fund the vital kit that will keep our crews safe as they save lives.
