Royal National Lifeboat Institution

Wherever you are in Cornwall, you are never too far from the sea.

The waters around our coast are fascinating but are among the most dangerous in the world. That is why there will always be a need for the Lifeboats.

The RNLI is a registered charity that saves lives at sea. It provides, on call, the 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service to 50 miles out from the coast of the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and a beach lifeguard service on 57 beaches in the south west of England.

The RNLI continues to rely on voluntary contributions and legacies for its income. Lifeboatmen and women are volunteers. There is a full-time mechanic in each all-weather lifeboat crew.

The volunteers receive a few pounds, each time they are called out, to cover their expenses. There are more than 4,600 volunteer crew members throughout the country, including over 300 women.

In the 30 seconds or so it will take you to read this sentence, the cost of maintaining the nation's maritime rescue service will have been over £95.

The RNLI is funded almost entirely by voluntary donations and legacies. For us to continue to save lives at sea and fund our plans for the future, we need your help.
