RNLI Lifeboats around the coast of Ireland and the UK are on call 24 hours a day, ready to respond to any emergency.
They provide search and rescue services, seasonal lifeguard services at numerous beaches, safety advice and flood rescue, and are committed to saving lives.
With an average of 22 call outs a day, there’s most likely a lifeboat out at a rescue as you read this. Check out www.RNLI.org and see for yourself the most recent activities.
County Donegal is fortunate to have three RNLI Lifeboat Stations around our coasts, but unfortunately, they have had quite a number of rescues recently too, so we appeal to all users of the water, to enjoy the water, but always wear a lifejacket or buoyancy aid, and pay attention to the weather.
Just last week, six teenagers had to be rescued in Bundoran, while Aranmore was called out to assist two sailors on a 14ft punt, and Lough Swilly had two shouts as well.
Your support for this worthwhile charity will help train and equip the RNLI lifesavers, so that they’re ready for anything, including the weather!
Please give generously as this is your chance to help the crews do their job, they are ordinary people doing extraordinary work.
