We recently invited guests to join us on the Thames for a free trip, all in aid of RNLI's SOS Day. The annual fundraising event is held for the RNLI every January, and encourages everyone to get involved in raising lifesaving funds. The RNLI provides a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service.
Our staff were more than happy to donate their wages for the day, giving our guests their best comedic tours free of charge, because this really is a cause close to our hearts. The charity is committed to saving lives, with their lifeboats, lifeguards, safety advice and flood rescue services - a very worthy cause we're sure you'll agree.
We're pleased to report that our fundraising efforts proved a huge success, raising £1,000 for this wonderful charity! A big thank you to all those who helped us raise the cash, we know it'll be put to fantastic use.
If you weren't able to join us for a free speedboat trip this year can also get involved in fundraising for the RNLI in other ways. Visit their website to find out how you can get involved, and don't forget to let us know about your fundraising efforts. Tweet us on @londonrib - we'd love to see your creative fundraising efforts!
