Saving Lives at Sea. The RNLI Needs New Fundraising Volunteers

01 Mar 2023

The great work of the RNLI is only made possible thanks to the volunteers at the heart of the charity operation. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity organisation, supported by expert staff, all working together to deliver the important lifesaving service. 

Set up in 1824 by Sir William Hilary to tackle the loss of life from shipwrecks around coastal shores, over the last 200 years the charity has saved over 143,000 lives and to continue doing the work they love the RNLI is seeking new fundraising volunteers to be a part of its crew in Clontarf as well as Howth, Skerries and Dun Laoghaire.

In 2021 lifeboat crews and lifeguards saved 408 lives at sea and the RNLI depends heavily on donations with 92% of RNLI income that same year coming from donations and legacies. 

So what is in it for you? 🤔

A chance to give something back. An opportunity to meet new people in your community and to play your role in making our coastlines safer for everyone.
