Our next TLF fundraiser will be on 12th May – an online word game. Details will be published soon and we look forward to your support as always.
Local group ‘Seaside Adventurers’ are an organisation for toddlers and preschoolers, who hold learning sessions on the beaches around the U.K. where they Play, Sing, Learn the Seaside Way! On Friday 14th May our local Seaside Adventurers are fundraising for Torbay Lifeboat by taking part in RNLI’s national ‘May Day Mile’ campaign. They will be heading along the Brixham breakwater from 16:15 and a very special guest will be joining them! Due to Covid regulations, if you would like to join them they would prefer that you book in with them beforehand, by sending a message via their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SeasideAdventurers/
You don’t have to be signed up to their Seaside Adventurers sessions to join in the fun, its open to all children and their parents/guardians ,although spaces will be limited due to current restrictions. ALL funds raised will go directly to our local Torbay Lifeboat to help save lives at sea.
After the visit to the Shop and Kiosk by the RNLI retail team to check our Covid processes, we have been given the go ahead to re-open. We will continue to follow the same pre-lockdown Covid safety guidelines to protect our volunteers and customers. Opening times will be…. Shop(initial opening hours) Monday to Thursday – 10am until 3.30pm Friday – 10am to 1pm Saturday – 10am to 3.30pm Sunday – Closed Kiosk Monday to Sunday – 10am until 4pm
What is Mayday? A mayday call is the most urgent plea RNLI lifesavers receive and is used when life is in immediate danger. Usually, our lifesavers answer calls for help, but today, with Summer on the way, it’s they who need YOUR help.We’re expecting more families than ever to book holidays in the UK and Ireland this year. People are excited to get away – and that’s how it should be, but it’s so easy to get into trouble by the water; for walkers to get cut off by the tide; for a paddling child to be swept out to sea.

Torbay Lifeboat Fundraisers annual fundraising week is scheduled to begin on Monday 9th August 2021, culminating in our Torbay Lifeboat Station Seaside Special event on 15th August, These dates are subject to Covid restrictions and will be confirmed nearer the time via this website.
The RNLI Torbay Lifeboat Fundraising Team (TLF) work throughout the year to raise funds to support the RNLI and the two Torbay lifeboats. An ALB Station costs in excess of £215,000 a year to run so TLF’s fundraising is vital to support RNLI operations.
Since the first relaxation of Corona-19 lockdown the RNLI lifeboats have been even busier than in a normal year. The expenses of operating and maintaining the lifeboat fleet and organising and supporting the lifeguards training and rollout do not go away. Fundraising events have practically ceased. You can maintain your support of the charity by using this link. We need your support now more than ever.
