Brighton RNLI volunteers shocked after charity funds stolen

VOLUNTEER lifeboat crew members are shocked after their charity collection box was broken into and emptied.

The collection box outside the RNLI Brighton shop in Brighton Marina has been searched twice in the last month.

As a charity, donations from the public are essential to ensure the RNLI can continue its lifesaving work.

The Brighton lifeboat crew launched 35 times and helped 16 people in the last year alone.

The station’s crew said they were deeply disappointed by the theft of the donated money, which would have helped fund vital training or equipment.

In a joint statement, they said: “The money in this collection box was generously donated by members of the public who have chosen to support our work.

“Our volunteers are working very hard to keep launching to rescue those who need us. That only makes it harder.”

Because the money was donated voluntarily, it’s difficult to estimate how much money was stolen.

The collection box is now removed and replaced by a contactless donation machine in the shop window. Brighton RNLI volunteers shocked after charity funds stolen
