What is Fish Supper?

RNLI Fish Supper is an annual charity event to raise funds to support our lifesaving work

Why it matters

Our crews are ready to drop everything – even their supper – at a moment’s notice to go to the rescue of people in trouble on the water. The money you raise when you host a Fish Supper supports all aspects of our lifesaving work and could help us buy kit for our crew members or fuel for one of our lifeboats.

Events like Fish Supper raise vital funds for our lifesaving work. Last year, our increasingly busy volunteer lifeboat crew and lifeguards aided 41,619 people and saved 329 lives.

We couldn’t save lives without you. Here’s a look at what we’re doing with your support.
