The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a registered charity which exists to save lives at sea. The R.N.L.I. depends entirely on voluntary contributions and legacies for it's income. Money raised in Ireland is spent in Ireland.

The R.N.L.I. was founded in 1829, and since that time it's lifeboats have saved over 134,500 lives. On average, lifeboats launch over 6,200 times every year and rescue over 6,300 people. The R.N.L.I awards Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, and the Institution of Vellum (a framed letter on parchment) for acts of bravery carried out by lifeboat crews. The Gold medal is so rare, that only 34 have been awarded this century.
