Peterborough RNLI Branch

The Peterborough RNLI regularly contributes to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution through various fund raising events across the city.

The two main events of each year are collections at the Peterborough Beer Festival and the Lakeside/RNLI 24 Hour Race which raises money through sponsorship.

The RNLI volunteer crews are funded entirely by voluntary donations and provide a 24-hour service around the coast of the UK and Republic of Ireland.

In 1999 the RNLI celebrated 175 Years of saving lives at sea. Scroll down to see the key moments of the RNLI's history, and the world events that set the context for the RNLI's work.
