Raising funds to buy crew equipment for Skerries RNLI

 Crew equipment for Skerries RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that saves lives at sea around the coasts of the UK, the Republic of Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man as well as on some inland waterways. 

The RNLI is principally funded by legacies and donations, and most of the members of its lifeboat crews are unpaid volunteers.

The RNLI has 237 lifeboat stations and operates 444 lifeboats. Crews rescued on average 22 people a day in 2015. RNLI Lifeguardsoperate on more than 200 beaches. .

Considerable effort is put into training and education by the Institution, particularly for young people; more than 6,000 children a week are spoken to by education volunteers about sea and beach safety, and over 800 children a week receive training. The Institution has saved over 140,000 lives since its foundation, at a cost of more than 600 lives lost in service.

Equipping volunteers properly for their vital life-saving role is essential, but kitting out volunteers is expensive. President Alan has committed Dublin Fingal Rotary to helping the Skerries RNLI station to provide the specilaist clothing and equipment that its volunteers need.
