RNLI - AYC's Nominated Charity
The RNLI is the club's nominated charity with various fund-raising events being held throughout the year. 2021 was a record-breaking year with a Charity Auction & Raffle raising over £5,000.
In 2022 the total donated to the RNLI was over £4,100, a very respectable total given the economic climate. Pig racing and 'Guess the weight of Sid' raised significant amounts.
The Club also provides the RNLI with opportunities to engage with members and the public to spread their water safety message and carry out life jacket checks.
In addition to fund raising at the Club, we encourage our members to support the RNLI with regular donations or legacies. Their face to face marketeers are on hand at various events to set up subscriptions. Find out more about supporting the RNLI as a member on their website RNLI Membership.
As a charity independent of government, support is vital in meeting the costs of saving lives at sea. RNLI volunteers give their time for free, but they need training, well-maintained equipment, lifeboats and shore facilities. Please support them if you can - you never know when you might need their help!
