The RNLI is already a very successful and functional voluntary organisation. The RNLI are great at raising awareness of their causes and raise their publicity factor. As a result of their campaigns I am almost certain that the majority of the public will have heard of the RNLI in anyway, however, think, do you really know the facts and what they risk to save peoples that are in critical danger? If you said no to these questions than please read my blog as I am sure that this will inform you more. The RNLI is a voluntary organisation – this means that they completely rely your donations to have such a courageous aim and to carry on making the U.K’s waters a safer, more enjoyable place. The RNLI have been saving thousands lives at sea since 1824! However the RNLI has expanded their charity to many other rescue services. The RNLI have a seasonal lifeboat search and rescue service which covers the Great British, Irish, the Channel Islands and the Isles of Mans coasts. They also provide flood rescue and lifeguards! They help whoever is in need of their help, despite their religion, age, gender etc or type of transport they are using. Many people also are unaware that the RNLI is a 24/7 rescue service so they are there whatever the weather, season or time of day.
