My story

[p]Hi everyone![/p][p]I'm spending Christmas in my home town in Exmouth, UK. It's a coastal town in Devon with a busy lifeboat station who have launched over 70 times in 2018 to over 40 people in difficulty. The RNLI are a charity close to my heart as the Crew, risking their lives to save others are all volunteers, on call 24/7 all the year round, including Christmas. [/p][p]Last year, during the festive period, there were 25 call-outs in the south west including Exmouth. Crew volunteers could be called out at any time when it's least convenient - during Christmas dinner, opening presents with family or socialising with friends. The charity receives no government funding and relies totally on donations and legacies. It's a vital emergency service and a large majority of casualties didn't intend to enter the water in the first place. [/p][p]I'd rather you didn't send me Christmas cards or presents this year, but donate towards the training of Crew volunteers at Exmouth lifeboat station. It costs over £1,500 per volunteer for annual training to save lives at sea - there are at least 25 Crew here. I haven't set a target, but I'd like to see how many Crew we can train up for next year to save people in difficulty near my home town.[/p][p]Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I wish you all a happy and safe Christmas!
