How your money helps

Every donation helps the RNLI work towards our goal of saving every one. Our lifesaving volunteers give their time for free, but they need training, well-maintained equipment, lifeboats and shore facilities. Your support helps our brave volunteers save lives – and it brings them safely home to their families too.
