The RNLI was honoured to receive the money raised by the UK Cattle Lameness Conference – thank you so much.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea, we are separate from the Coast Guard and the independent from the Government, we rely on charitable donations to be able to continue the good work we do – Saving Lives at Sea.
The Vision of the RNLI is to end the preventable loss of life and sea and we do this through our volunteers and staff, who all strive for excellence and to be courageous, selfless and dependable. Through their hard work, and your donations, we have saved thousands of lives, last year we aided 41,619 people and saved 329 lives.
Sadly, 320,000 people, around the world, drown every year, but through our Prevention work we raising awareness, creating safer places and encouraging safer behaviour, through education.
The RNLI provides 24-hour search and rescue services around the UK and Ireland up to 100 nautical miles offshore, and rely on people such as NACFT member, Francis Burns, to come out and help. WE have been busier this year as we also have 4 specially trained flood rescue teams that go out around the UK.
The NACFT donation will go a long way to help fund vital equipment to keep the staff and volunteers doing the best they can to Saving Lives at Sea.
