As the RNLI are just a stone throw away from our offices in Poole. We are sharing our support and will continue to do so each season. The RNLI is an independent charity, this means they don’t receive any funding from the UK government. They can’t save lives at sea without public support. Lifeboats need to be designed, built, fuelled and maintained, and their crews trained and equipped. Lifeguards also need training and equipment.
Some interesting ‘did you know’ facts about the RNLI, taken from their Twitter page
• 6 out of 10 launches only possible thanks to legacies
• 138000 lives saved since 1824
• 22 people are rescued every day
• Funded by voluntary donations
• 4, 500 volunteer crew members
Amazed by those statistics, if so, why not help out and try your luck with the Lifeboat Lottery.
