In 2015, we’ll be supporting RNLI Jersey as our chosen charity.
Every year we support a local charity by raising funds, providing complimentary facility hire, and helping them build awareness of their hard work.
RNLI Jersey is a team of highly trained volunteers who operate from the St Helier and St Catherine’s lifeboat stations on Jersey. They operate three lifeboats, two inshore lifeboats and one all weather lifeboat, from the two stations. In the summer, the volunteer lifeboat crew are supported by paid lifeguards who are stationed at Jersey’s popular western beaches, supporting the safety of all beachgoers. The RNLI Jersey is part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the charity which saves lives at sea and which operates across the Channel Islands, UK and Republic of Ireland. The RNLI is wholly funded by donations and each lifeboat crew is made up of volunteers who demonstrate skill, courage, and selflessness.
In addition to ensuring the safety of those at sea and individuals engaged in water activities, RNLI Jersey is involved in education in water safety. Every islander is touched by the sea in some way, and the RNLI plays an important part in educating adults and children alike about how to use our amazing coastal environment safely.
Thank you for helping us to support them.
