The Royal National Lifeboat Institution

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that saves lives at sea.

The RNLI provides a 24/7 lifeboat search and rescue service to 100 nautical miles out from the coast of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.

The RNLI also runs a beach lifeguard service that completes the fully-integrated rescue service from beach to open sea.

The RNLI receives no funding from central UK Government and is funded by legacies and voluntary donations.

2009 and 2010 have been the busiest years in history of the RNLI and on average we rescue 22 people every day. With the need for our service ever increasing, the regular donation of funds is even more vital to maintaining our lifesaving work now and in the future.

Training and equipping our courageous volunteer crew members is essential to saving the life of someone in trouble at sea, but it comes at a price. Regular income can fund the following:

€12.00 a month over a year could equip a volunteer crew member with a thermal suit, essential for locking in the heat

€18.00 a month over a year could protect a volunteer crew member with a safety helmet

10 people donating €12 a month could fund the cost of annual training one crew member

Regular income is the lifeblood of our organisation. The RNLI relies on this support to continue saving lives at sea.

Thank you.
