raised of £500 target by 31 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to pay for a webcam to go on the lifeboat boathouse at Whitby

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I intend installing a webcam on the lifeboat boathouse to look down the harbour towards the piers and sea. This would be accessible free of charge to anyone and everyone but would be of particular use to those intending to go to sea and wanting a better idea of conditions before venturing off their moorings.

The RNLI is currently financially stretched and cannot be asked to pay the cost so a donation to cover the cost would be very much appreciated.. Any money left over would be donated to the RNLI general funds.

Thank you

Mike Major - Chairman RNLI Whitby Lifeboat Management Group

    A very big thank you for your generous donations and support for the installation of a web cam. Together with a separate donation of £250 from Whitby Boating Association you have raised £1,510. This is more than needed for the webcam and installation so the rest of the money will go to helping keep Whitby’s two lifeboats financed. Our normal fund raising activities are currently suspended because of covid-19 so this contribution will be especially welcome. My initial target was well beaten so thank you once again.
