By remembering Yalari, you will have chosen to be part of creating generational change by empowering Indigenous children through education.
Ordinary People Doing Ordinary Things
Our crew members and lifeguards are ordinary people, who drop everything at a moment’s notice to answer a call for help. A gift in your Will can help keep our lifesavers safe when they head out into wild seas to rescue people in an emergency.
One such callout was to a sailor who was left hanging on for dear life when his boat was hit by a wave, throwing him into the chilly November sea. Fortunately, he was spotted by a passer-by, who raised the alarm.
Minutes after launching, the four-strong crew of the Mudeford lifeboat were at the man’s side. They found him clinging desperately to the outboard motor of his upturned boat. ‘He didn’t want to let go at first,’ explains crew member Simon. ‘His hands were hard and tight, and he was scared and cold. I don’t think he would have lasted much longer.’
The helm, Ian Parker, expertly held the lifeboat in position while his crewmates pulled the casualty to safety. ‘I had three highly trained crew behind me,’ he says. ‘Their teamwork helped save this man’s life.’
These courageous RNLI lifesavers are part of a lifesaving tradition of almost 200 years, which, with the support of gifts in Wills, can continue for years to come.
Any gift, large or small, will make a difference. It’s a gift that won’t be forgotten – because if you do choose to remember the RNLI in your Will, your name will be added to the side of a lifeboat along with the names of others who have decided to support us in this special way. So, you will always be part of our lifesaving family.

How to include a gift in your Will
An up-to-date Will ensures your wishes for your family and any charities you support will be clearly understood.
Do I Need A Will And How Do I Create One?
Will is a legal document that sets out how the things you own will be distributed when you pass away and is the only way to ensure your wishes will be honoured. It is also a wonderful way to remember and provide for the people and causes you care about.
Some people tend to overlook the importance of making a Will or think it is too difficult. Everyone should have a Will to ensure the people you love, and the charitable causes you care about, are looked after when you are gone.
To make or update your Will we recommend speaking to a qualified legal professional. They will ensure your Will is valid and your intentions will be carried out.
