What are RNLI Garden Parties?

Now more than ever, RNLI lifesavers across the UK and Ireland need your help.

It doesn’t matter who’s in trouble or where they are, our volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards will answer the call to save every one they can. And you can be their hero by hosting your very own outdoor fundraiser.

So we’re asking you to host an RNLI Garden Party. Collect lifesaving donations using your Fundraisin page, and encourage your guests to join in with a donation-based tombola, Where’s Welly game, or other activities that give you an opportunity to have fun together.
