BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF RNLI FOUNDATION
I never thought much of life boats.
I thought that it was only people on speed boats collecting stranded people at sea.
I was wrong. There is ALOT more to it. Boys as young as 11 volunteer to go out at sea and rick their life in disastrous weather conditions to help the life of someone more vunerable to the harsh conditions!
People put their lives on the line for others and also it amazingly is a volunteer base charity.
It isnt government run, and without these brave people in RNLI, who would help people out at sea?
My nana once told me that a boy aged 18 went out on his first day, and died. This is how heroic someone is, and they need our support!
Once in cornwall england, People were stuck at sea and the volunteers ALL went out. The weather was overwhelming and a helicopter was sent but couldnt keep its control and was sent away. RNLI tried to help the vunerable.
Not a single person came back.
With your help and money and support, we can ensure that all equipment is safe.
