Support our local RNLI lifesavers by doing your Mayday Mile

May 03, 2021

A mayday call is the most urgent plea RNLI lifesavers receive, and is used when life is in immediate danger. Usually the lifesavers answer calls for help. But today, with summer on the way, it's they who need YOUR help.

This year we are 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.

The RNLI, with their stations in Llandudno and Rhyl, are 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?

Walk it. Run it. Skate it. As long as you can cover a one-mile distance in a way that’s challenging or fun (or both!), you can help raise funds for RNLI lifesavers. Try it on a treadmill, or pace around the park. Go it alone or join an organised event. Put your best boot forward and do it in wellies.

However you do your Mayday Mile, you’ll be joining a vibrant community of fundraisers around the UK and Ireland, all stepping in to help keep summer safe and fun for families, holidaymakers, and those brave volunteers who answer their calls for help.
