Where your money goes

Buying an RNLI virtual gift powers our lifesaving work - whether you send it to a loved one as a unique present or buy one for yourself to show your personal support for our lifesavers.

The money raised from the sale of our Lifesaving Gifts goes directly towards our lifeboat or lifeguard service. It helps fund essential kit, training and operational support for our lifesavers as well as providing and maintaining rescue equipment and facilities.

That means, depending on the gift you choose, your Lifesaving Gift could buy anything from a pair of sea gloves to keep a lifeboat volunteer's hands warm during cold, wet shouts, to heating a lifeboat station so that our volunteers can get changed in the warm and dry. It could buy a rash vest to protect a lifeguard's skin from the sun's harmful rays or go towards a new lifeguard unit to help our lifeguards protect thousands of beachgoers.

How to use your Lifesaving Gift

Once you've selected and ordered your virtual gift, we'll send you your Lifesaving Gift in the post. Simply detach the gift card, write your message inside the card and give to a friend or loved one in the envelope provided.

The card acts as a lifesaving keepsake, reminding your recipient how your Lifesaving Gift will benefit our lifesavers and help save lives at sea.

If you order any of our virtual gift cards you will be making a donation of the amount you have selected to RNLI. Neither you, nor the recipient of your virtual gift card (if someone other than you), will receive the item described on your chosen virtual gift card.

Depending on the type of virtual gift chosen by you, your donation will be paid to RNLI and used to help the RNLI to fund its Lifeguards or Lifeboats services generally. The specific item shown on the virtual gift card is an indication only of how your donation will be used.

For more information about our virtual gifts and donations please see our Terms and Conditions.

Last summer was one of our busiest ever. Our lifeguards kept hundreds of thousands of people safe on the beach. Now they need your help to get ready for next year.

This virtual gift will help fund our lifeguard service on over 249 beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. This includes the cost of supervising beaches, providing and maintaining rescue equipment, running and maintaining lifeguard units, and providing essential lifeguard training and kit.

The gift of safer beaches for everyone

Beach safety flags are part of that essential kit. Our lifeguards use them to warn beachgoers of dangerous sea conditions and to show the safest areas for bathing and bodyboarding, and for non-powered watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and kayaking. Their vigilance keeps thousands of people safe every year.
