RNLI Shannon Life Boat Corgi Gift Set
Founded in 1824, the RNLI is a unique charity. Funded by public donations, it provides a 24/7 search and rescue service around the coastlines of the UK and Republic of Ireland. It designs and builds its own lifeboats, and the vast majority of its lifeboat crew members are volunteers – ordinary people from all walks of life who give up their time to help others.
As well as lifeboats, the RNLI provides a beach lifeguard service. The charity also works to improve water safety through education and awareness campaigns, as well as sharing its expertise with life-saving organisations overseas. There are over 350 lifeboat in the RNLI fleet based at our stations around the UK and Ireland.
Our RNLI gift pack combines three of the most iconic:

– The Land Rover Defender and D Class Lifeboat (1:83) – The D class inshore lifeboat has been the workhorse of the RNLI for over 50 years. Length: 135mm.
