Meet our fundraising volunteers

To operate a professional 24-hour search and rescue service at 238 lifeboat stations - and do all the other work we do – we must raise almost £180 million every year.

Around 20,000 community fundraising volunteers - at RNLI branches, guilds and other fundraising groups, and in RNLI shops and visitor centres - raise much-needed funds. People who can’t make a regular commitment help out when they can, or raise money through taking part in sponsored events.

Lifeboat volunteers need your help right now

Our crews are facing their toughest Christmas ever. Call outs are increasing, but RNLI income has gone down. And people are still getting into danger in the water. It’s a Perfect Storm. But you can help them through it with a donation today.
