The RNLI has a network of local fundraising teams organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea.

Alongside these teams, many people raise funds on an individual basis on behalf of the RNLI and, a number of businesses also choose the RNLI as their charity of the year.  As part of this commitment, the businesses look at a number of different initiatives to raise funds throughout the year to support our lifesaving organisation.  As a charity we are grateful and welcome all of these different fundraising initiatives and we are constantly looking at how we can build on these moving forward.

This is where you come in!  If you have a little time on your hands together with an inquisitive mind you can support our charity by carrying out research into whether businesses within a specific area have a ‘Charity of the Year’ and if so, how they approach these relationships.
