Dawsons are delighted to be hosting an online charity auction to raise funds for the RNLI. Featuring a variety of kindly donated items and promises, 100% of the money raised from this auction will go towards the lifesaving work of the RNLI. It costs £71 a day to run the lifeboats at a station like Southwold, and £49 a day to keep volunteer crew members safe through training and providing them with world class equipment to protect them whilst they risk their lives to save others.
The RNLI is a charity founded upon and driven by their values of selflessness, courage, dependability and trustworthiness, with volunteers at its heart. Values shared by generations of supporters who have powered its lifesaving work through kindness and generosity for almost 200 years. Volunteers make up 95% of the organisation - ordinary people doing extraordinary things - supported by expert staff, all working together to help communities at home and abroad save lives.
