The RNLI are a world-leading modern emergency service, separate from the coastguard and independent from government. They are a charity founded upon and driven by their values of selflessness, courage, dependability and trustworthiness with volunteers at their heart.

Scarborough’s Lifeboat Station, founded in 1801, is one of the oldest still in operation. The crew has received 35 awards for gallantry and today the station operates a Shannon class all-weather lifeboat and a D class inshore lifeboat.

Donate to their emergency appeal today to support their lifeboat crews. Your gift to the RNLI, no matter how much, will make a lifesaving difference. Not only to the people they rescue and their loved ones, but to the crew and their families too.
