Running for the RNLI
AnnanTech is proud to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) as their chosen charity for their marathon running. Since 1824, the RNLI has been responsible for saving 139,000 lives at sea. The Charity receives little to no government funding and relies completely on brave volunteers that risk their lives to save others at sea. The volunteer lifeboat crews are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It costs £405,000 per day to this essential service.
The Thames and Cowes Lifeboat station appeal
The Thames River is one of the busiest waterways in the world. There were over 500 incidents on the river in 2011 alone. The RNLI is also currently raising funds, to build a new lifeboat station at Cowes, on the Isle of Wight. The lifeboats are currently based in a temporary building, in a congested marina. The congestion causes delays and can cost lives when every minute counts in a sea rescue. All the funds raised will go towards the building of the new lifeboat station.
