There are many ways in which you can donate to the Southport Offshore Rescue Trust to help us fund the annual running costs of our Lifeboat Service, which is currently in excess of £70,000 each year.


We need to buy rescue equipment for the boats, fund the maintenance costs for the boats, launch vehicles and quad bikes, and the essential training courses needed for the safety of our crew members.

We are not part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).


We do not receive any funding from them, and we depend entirely on donations from the public. We receive no Government grants, and none of our crew and volunteers receive any remuneration.


We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help people in distress.

We depend on you, so please help us.
