The Mayor's Charity 2019/20
Southend Lifeboat station is just one of 238 around the coasts of
England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The RNLI operates a 24 hour a day,
7 days a week, 365 days a year all-weather rescue service around the
coast and some major rivers. Additionally the RNLI has lifeguards on
major tourist beaches during the summer months and maintains a Flood
Rescue service for inland areas.
The RNLI is a registered charity which exists to save lives at sea. It
provides, on call, the 24-hour service necessary to cover search and
rescue requirements to 50 miles out from the coast of the United Kingdom
and the Republic of Ireland. All the money raised locally in Southend
towards the work of our station, remains here in Southend and directly
supports activities in our town.
Southend Lifeboat station is one of the busiest coastal stations in the
UK, run completely by volunteers reacting to over 100 call outs per
We are delighted to be supported by the Mayor of Southend until May
2020, and grateful for all his and others ongoing support to our work;
without that support it would not be possible to carry out our work.
