In 2022, RNLI lifeguards saw a staggering 155% rise in paddle board incidents compared with 2021 while volunteer lifeboat crews saw an increase of 20%. In the 10 years 2012-21 the RNLI saved the lives of 300 kayakers & canoeists & helped 6,361 people.
We are a small fund raising group who desperately need more people to help. Can you spare an hour to help with our collections ? Would you be able to help with other events we put on during the year?
Any assistance would be welcome to fund our selfless lifeboat men & women & lifeguards who drop everything and work voluntarily to save lives at sea & around the coast.
If you are interested in helping this vital non government funded lifesaving institution please get in touch with:
