Forthcoming Events

The running costs of the RNLI are £145.4m annually,
the annual running costs of an all-weather lifeboat station, like The Lizard is on average £225,000, to train one lifeboat crew member costs £1214. Because of these costs it is important that fundraising is carried out locally. The Lizard, Coverack, Helston and Porthleven lifeboat branches hold a number of fundraising events each year.

The New Tamar Class Lifeboat

The appeal for The Lizard’s new Tamar class all-weather lifeboat was launched in the summer of 2009 by the now retired Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, Lady Mary Holborow. During the nationwide Appeal of £1.8 million, our local target of £300,000 was exceeded in little over two years, an amazing achievement in such difficult times. The fundraising response from individuals, businesses and organisations both locally and nationally was outstanding and we cannot thank everyone enough.

The Appeal
has now closed
