The RNLI will be holding their annual "Fish Supper" charity event this October to help them raise funds to support their vital lifesaving work.
The campaign encourages people to sign up to host a fish supper for friends and family at their home on one day between the 9th - 25th of October this year.
The charity has posted a number of helpful recipes and activities for those who are interested in hosting an event this autumn.
In a post on their website the RNLI have said of the event:
"Our crews are ready to drop everything – even their supper – at a moment’s notice to go to the rescue of people in trouble on the water. The money you raise when you host a Fish Supper supports all aspects of our lifesaving work and could help us buy kit for our crew members or fuel for one of our lifeboats.
Events like Fish Supper raise vital funds for our lifesaving work. Last year, our increasingly busy volunteer lifeboat crew and lifeguards aided 41,619 people and saved 329 lives."
The RNLI rescued 9,379 people in 2019 and helped over 29,000 on beaches around the UK, but they rely on donations to fund their work.
