We need your help to keep people safe.

Our volunteers give their time for free, but we still need funds for fuel to keep our lifeboats on the water, and to afford the life-saving equipment our lifeguards use. There are many different ways you can support Folkestone Rescue.

To donate to us via PayPal, please click the button above. PayPal accepts debit and credit cards.

You can also donate by putting money in one of our collection boxes which can be found around Folkestone in the following locations:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some collection box locations may be closed.


Raise Funds for Us

By taking part in charity events, you can raise funds for us through sponsorship. Folkestone holds several annual charitable events, including the Rotary Half-Marathon and the Boxing Day Dip.

If you would like to support us by being sponsored in a local event, please let us know so that we can help to promote you.
