Give to a special appeal
RNLI charity appeals give you the opportunity to choose a fundraising appeal you'd like to support. They can be fundraising appeals for individual lifeboat stations or certain areas of the RNLI's work. They can help fund specific needs such as crew training, crew kit, rescue equipment, lifeboats, new boathouses and station running costs. Or they can help raise general funds to be spent wherever the need is greatest.
Being a charity, our need for funds is constant. But there are times when that need becomes so great that we launch an urgent fundraising appeal. And, with our lifeboat crews being busier than ever at a time when income has gone done, right now is one of those times.
You can help us brave the storm
More and more people are visiting the coast and needing our help, and too many are still drowning. If our lifeboat crews have any hope of reaching everyone safely and in time, they need vital training, stations that are fit for purpose, protective kit, reliable equipment and the fastest lifeboats. These things may be costly, but the're not as costly as a family losing a loved one to drowning.
You can help our lifeboat volunteers brave the storm by donating to our urgent fundraising appeal. Your gift, no matter how much, will make a lifesaving difference. Not only to the people we rescue and their loved ones, but to the crew and their families too.
