AJ and Curtis celebrate London Lifeboat Day with the RNLI

Words by Harrison Read

AJ & Curtis Pritchard are on a mission to spread awareness of some incredible causes, one charity visit at a time. The dynamic duo is gearing up for their next adventure.

Their latest stop? The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Did you know that since forming 200 years ago, the RNLI have saved over 144,000 lives at sea!

Joining forces with the RNLI, AJ & Curtis aim to shine a spotlight on the vital role volunteers play in powering the RNLI's life-saving mission across 238 stations nationwide. As advocates for making a difference, the brothers were eager to learn more about the RNLI and lend their voices to the cause.

Today (Thursday 9th May) marks London Lifeboat Day, a celebration of the RNLI's 200th anniversary. The streets around Trafalgar Square, Borough Market, and Waterloo Bridge will transform into a sea of RNLI yellow as part of the festivities.

The RNLI is dedicated to saving lives at sea, providing 24-hour rescue services, seasonal lifeguards, water safety education, and more. AJ & Curtis visited the Tower RNLI to discover firsthand the dedication and commitment of the volunteers who form the backbone of the RNLI's operations.

As they explored the station, the brothers gained insight into the challenges and rewards of life as an RNLI volunteer. From conducting training exercises to maintaining equipment, every aspect of the RNLI's work is crucial to its mission of saving lives at sea.

Through their visit, AJ & Curtis hope to raise awareness of the RNLI's vital work and inspire others to support this life-saving charity.
