The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
All crew and supporters at Lymington are volunteers and rely on generous donations.
As part of our Pop Up Restaurant event, we have decided to support the Lymington RNLI station. There has been a significant reduction in fundraising for the station during this difficult time and our crew members are still saving lives at sea.
