Lifeboats News Release

Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams will be showing off their culinary prowess, in support of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution's Fish Supper weekend of 13–15 October, as they encourage people all over the UK and Ireland to host a fundraising fish-themed meal to help the charity save lives at sea.

The television presenters will be cooking Spicy Seafood Tagliatelle live on their Facebook page at 7.30pm on Thursday 5 October – before making a Ferrero Rocher Affogato dessert live on their YouTube channel at 8pm the same evening, to raise awareness for the RNLI’s annual Fish Supper fundraiser.

The RNLI relies on the generosity of the public to fund its lifesaving services, and the charity’s volunteers often sacrifice their precious meal times at a moment’s notice, answering the call of their pagers to save lives at sea. The Fish Supper campaign shines a light on the missed and disrupted dinners RNLI crew experience daily and the commitment and support shown by their families.

Nadia says: 'I can’t think of a better way to help raise vital funds for the RNLI, than by enjoying a delicious fish supper with loved ones. I’m really looking forward to cooking a tasty, yet simple fish dish to support the charity’s brave volunteer lifeboat crews and I’d encourage everyone to get involved too.

Notes to Editors:

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
