Join Team Rescue - support Coastguard with a monthly gift

Emergencies at sea can happen at any time, and to anybody.

Coastguard is the charity saving lives at sea. Our volunteers are on standby 24/7, ready to save the lives of people they've never met.

But we can't do it without you.

Your monthly donation will support our brave volunteer crews when they head out in terrible conditions.

And you'll be the hope on the horizon for those lost at sea. Sign up now!


Your gifts will provide lifesaving gear and help our amazing volunteers prepare for diabolical conditions at sea.

Signing up online is easy; and you'll receive a welcome pack and a consolidated receipt at the end of the tax year.

If you have a credit or debit card handy you can get going in seconds! Click here to sign up now.
