The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that saves lives at sea.
It provides a 24-hour on-call service to cover search and rescue requirements on inland waters, beaches the River Thames and out to 100 nautical miles from the coast of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
This site is our way of thanking, informing and updating all the supporters whose generosity makes our work possible.
Tower Lifeboat is the dedicated Search and Rescue resource for Central London, that covers the Thames between Barking Creek and Battersea; these are approximate bounds, dependent on tidal conditions and other SAR resources, Tower Lifeboat has been deployed outside these bounds but its work is largely carried out well within them.
