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?

Usually, RNLI lifesavers answer calls for help. But today, with summer on the way, it’s they who need YOUR help.

We’re raising funds to keep brave lifesavers kitted and trained to deal with these emergencies–and come home safe themselves. Will you join in and help make sure the memories we make this summer are precious ones?
