What is Mayday?
Mayday is our yellow-themed annual fundraising campaign, which runs from 1-31 May. It’s a celebration of our volunteer lifeboat crews, who are on call 24 hours a day, every day, to save lives at sea.
This year, we want to raise £700,000/€780,000* to fund the vital kit that protects them in all weathers. Whether you fundraise, join an event or donate, your help this Mayday will make a lifesaving difference.
*Any funds raised over our £700,000/€780,000 target will go towards funding our lifesaving work around the UK and Ireland.
No time to spare?
If fundraising isn’t for you, please help keep our crews safe by donating online. Just £25 could buy a pair of gloves to keep our crews’ hands warm and dry on long, cold, rain-soaked shouts.
