Support

We are an independent charity and not part of the RNLI. This means funding comes from the efforts of the crew themselves and the generosity of local people and businesses. We sometimes receive financial help from local, national government and other bodies.

Volunteers provide this lifesaving service, but to continue to operate we must raise vital funds to keep our vehicles and equipment in good condition, fuelled and ready to respond. We do not receive regular funding from the Government or any other body, so we rely on your generosity to keep us running. Please help us save lives by supporting us.

How Much Does It Cost?

The annual cost of running the lifeboat is around £20,000. We hold a reserve of £15,000 for unexpected expenses such as emergency repairs and replacement of essential equipment (we can’t have the boats out of service while we raise money for these sort of expenses).

Annual Accounts

Our annual accounts are firstly submitted to an independent examiner and then final accounts and annual report sent to OSCR (Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) for approval. See their website oscr.org.uk for historical submissions.

If you would like to see our most recent accounts please write to the Treasurer (Nith Inshore Rescue, Lifeboat Station, Glencaple, Dumfries, DG1 4RD), enclosing a stamped self-addressed A5 envelope.
