On average 22 people are saved every day.
3,478 rescue craft launches between January & June 2014: 37% of these in darkness.
86% of people drowned round the UK coastline are male (more than cycling accidents)

In aid of RNLI
RNLI Concert. Our trumpet recital on May 7th by Crispian Steele-Perkins accompanied by Leslie Pearson was fantastic!! We were thoroughly entertained with music from Handel to Bernstein on several different trumpets and even a piece of garden hose! It was a privilege to have such an eminent pair come to Somerset to play for us. With thanks to St Mary’s, Huish Episcopi for providing the venue. The afternoon raised £2,400 for the RNLI.
