Your shopping is a lifesaver this Mayday

People are excited to get away this season. And that’s how it should be. But it’s easy to get into trouble by the water – and, last year, RNLI volunteers had their busiest summer of saving lives.

You can help them prepare for another busy summer, by shopping with us this Mayday: our annual fundraiser throughout the month of May. Every purchase you make will help your volunteer lifesavers be ready and able to save more lives – and you’ll be a lifesaver, too.

What is Mayday?

Mayday is a call for help. Usually, RNLI lifesavers answer mayday calls and rescue others. But today, with summer on the way, they’re asking for YOUR help.

As the beaches fill up this summer, our lifesavers will be at their busiest. Crews need to be ready and that takes lifeboats, training, kit, lifeboat stations and fuel. Help them get ready to save lives this summer by taking part in a fundraising Mayday Mile.
