Story

Our RNLI lifeboats in Yorkshire and the North East protect hundreds of communities through our 24-hour search and rescue service. They rely on the safest, most reliable lifeboats and modern stations to launch from.

The stunning coastline of Yorkshire, Cleveland, Teeside, Co Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland are enjoyed by millions of people from across the country every year. But the water remains an unpredictable environment that can catch people out. People will always need our help and we will always be there to answer that call.

Keeping a modern fleet of lifeboats maintained, fuelled and ever ready to go to the rescue from all 19 of the lifeboat stations in Yorkshire and the North East is expensive and we rely entirely on voluntary donations to ensure this service is maintained. Add to that crew training and kit, and the pounds start to add up. It costs an average of £164k to run lifeboat stations in Yorkshire and the North East but since the Covid 19 pandemic began, we haven't been able to fundraise as normal to keep our lifeboats afloat.

We rely on donations from you the public to continue saving lives at sea - your donation to this page will help support the running of the following lifeboat stations in Yorkshire and the North East:

Amble, Berwick upon Tweed, Blyth, Bridlington, Craster, Cullercoats, Filey, Flamborough, Hartlepool, Humber, Newbiggin, Redcar, Scarborough, Seahouses, Staithes and Runswick, Sunderland, Tynemouth, Whitby and Withernsea
