RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour search and rescue service all around the UK and Ireland, while lifeguards keep a careful watch on the UK’s busiest beaches. RNLI lifesaving and drowning prevention depend on supporter fundraising and the generous donations that you and others give.

Through this page, you can choose to make a one-off or monthly donation, or to gift your Nectar points to the RNLI, using Nectar Donate.  

Thank you, your support means so much to our lifeboat crews, who put their own lives on hold to save others in trouble. As a charity, we rely on donations like yours to train and equip our lifeboat volunteers and lifeguards. Your generosity also helps to fund vital drowning prevention work that helps keep people out of danger. 

You really are helping to save lives.
