The Somerton & Langport Area Branch of RNLI are a small team of local volunteers who arrange several fund raising events in the area during the year.
Coffee mornings, concerts,open gardens, collections and lectures are some of the events held to support our life-saving volunteers at RNLI.
We would love to have some more help so if there is anyone who would like to get involved we would be delighted to hear from you.

Some Facts about the RNLI
The RNLI relies on public donations & legacies; it is not government funded.
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)
On one evening in August 2014 at Polzeath, North Cornwall the lifeguard team rescued 32 people in 90 minutes.
Our new all weather lifeboat centre in Poole enables us to build our own lifeboats. This saves RNLI £3 Million EACH YEAR
