Funded by the Community
Sidmouth Lifeboat is not part of, or funded by the RNLI, although we do have close links with the RNLI through the nature of our work. Sidmouth Lifeboat is funded entirely by the community in and around the Sid Valley and friends of Sidmouth Lifeboat from further away.
How to Help
We are very grateful to the people who donate time or money, or who leave us a bequest, or buy something from our boathouse shop, or attend one of our fundraising events, or simply pop some change into the buckets held by Sid & Alma’s (our two mannequins, who stand outside our station in all weathers, collecting money) when strolling by. To all of you - THANK YOU! We couldn’t do what we do, without you.
100% of money raised is used to keep the boat maintained and crew trained and equipped.
