Fund Raising

Fundraising is in full swing. The current lifeboat “Community Spirit III” is due for renewal mid 2020. This is necessary to comply with Coastguard regulations which are designed to ensure that casualties and crew have equipment that is fit for purpose.

Loughor Inshore Rescue Boat is an independent lifeboat charity that relies on the generosity of people, mainly in the Loughor Estuary area, to keep it operational. We receive no financial support from the MCA (Maritime Coastguard Agency) or RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) although we are a ‘declared’ Inshore Lifeboat facility the same as RNLI inshore lifeboats, and work closely with both organisations in this area.

Loughor Inshore Rescue Boat is an independent lifeboat charity that relies on the generosity of people, mainly in the Loughor Estuary area, to keep it operational. We receive no financial support from the MCA (Maritime Coastguard Agency) or RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) although we are a ‘declared’ inshore lifeboat facility the same as RNLI inshore lifeboats, and work closely with both organisations in this area.

To keep our station running costs around £22,000 per year, and because we are a charity we are not allowed to directly ask for any money from the people we assist. We are on call 24 hours per day 365 days per year, to help persons in distress.

We depend on you, so please help us. Remember every little helps to keep us providing a service to the public.
