Falmouth Lifeboat Station covers the coastline between Dodman Point and Black Head and includes both the Fal and Helford Estuaries. The station has a Severn Class All Weather Lifeboat and an Atlantic 85 class Inshore Lifeboat which launch on service over a hundred times each year. Our volunteer crew are available 24/7 for anyone who needs our help and we will always be there to answer that call.
Keeping a modern fleet of lifeboats maintained, fuelled and ever ready to go to the rescue from all 33 South West lifeboat stations is expensive and we rely entirely on voluntary donations to ensure this service is maintained. Add to that crew training and kit, and the pounds start to add up. It costs an average of £158k to run lifeboat stations in the South West but this year, with the implications of Covid-19, we haven’t been able to fundraise to keep our lifeboats afloat.
We rely on donations from you the public to continue saving lives at sea – your donation on the JustGiving page will help support the running costs of stations in the South West including our lifeboats based in Falmouth and their volunteer crew.
