Howth RNLI launch Mayday campaign

Members of the Howth RNLI crew have launched their Mayday campaign as part of the RNLI's national fundraising drive which takes place from May 1-5 nationwide

The RNLI saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour, 365 days-a-year search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland from over 230 lifeboat stations.

The RNLI is independent of the Coastguard and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since its foundation in 1824, lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 140,000 lives.
