The perfect remembrance

Commemorate the life of someone you miss by sharing their name through Launch a Memory. There is a suggested donation of £30/€30.

Your loved one's name will be proudly displayed on the Shannon's hull with up to 10,000 names – and will be beside our crew, every time the boat launches.

For further details, and to help answer any questions, see our Frequently Asked Questions section.

The details

The Lifeboat will be stationed at Invergordon Lifeboat station, and will launch in April 2020.

We're grateful for any donation you'd like to make in memory of your loved one, whether it’s large or small. There is a suggested donation of £30/€30 and there is a limit of one name per donation.
