What is Mayday?
A mayday call is the most urgent plea RNLI lifesavers receive and is used when life is in immediate danger. Usually our lifesavers answer calls for help. But today, with summer on the way, it’s they who need YOUR help.
We’re expecting more families than ever to book holidays in the UK and Ireland this year. People are excited to get away – and that’s how it should be. But it’s so easy to get into trouble by the water. For walkers to get cut off by the tide. For a paddling child to be swept out to sea.
We’re raising funds to keep brave lifesavers kitted and trained to deal with these emergencies – and come home safe themselves. Will you join in The Mayday Mile and help make sure the memories we make this summer are precious ones?
