Thank you for choosing to support the RNLI. As a charity, we rely on the kindness and generosity of people like you to power our lifesaving. And right now, we need your support more than ever.
There are countless good charities to support, all with great causes. If you've been looking at how to support charities, we feel privileged and extremely thankful that you have chosen to save lives at sea.
After a relentless summer, our boats, kit and crews have all taken a beating. Lifesaving gear needs maintaining and repairing. And harsher weather will make rescues more challenging.
When conditions deteriorate, our volunteers rely even more on their world-class training and lifesaving kit – the things that people like you help provide. Our crews are still feeling the heat. Will you be the backup they need?
