The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that provides a 24-hour lifesaving service around the UK and Republic of Ireland. It is entirely funded by public donations and receives no funding from the UK Government. The SRCMBC Annual Exhibition in Highcliffe (on the south coast of England) is held in aid of the RNLI, the Club participates at local Lifeboat Days by exhibiting models, and the Clubs major Charity Exhibition, held in Lymington is jointly in aid of the RNLI and H4H.
Help for Heroes: "The message is simple: H4H does not seek to criticise or be political, we simply want to help and to do so by asking everyone to do their bit to raise money. Once that money is raised, we go to the experts in the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force for guidance as to how best to spend it. It is our intention to spend all we raise on the practical, direct support of those wounded in the service of our country since 9/11." The Clubs major Charity Exhibition, held in Lymington is jointly in aid of H4H and the RNLI.
Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. There have been individual contributions in memory of past club members and a Club donations raised by the Christmas Lunch raffle.
Naomi House is the children's hospice for Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Wiltshire and the fringes of West Sussex and Surrey. They help over 220 families with life limiting conditions and support their families. They are there for the good days, difficult days and last days. The SRCMBC has donated funds raised by the Christmas Lunch raffle as well as donations by Club members.
The Stars Appeal raises money to create the best possible experience for the 300,000 people who rely on Salisbury District Hospital. It funds extra care and equipment over and above that provided by the NHS. Proceeds from the SRCMBC 2008 Christmas lunch raffle were split between Naomi House and The Stars Appeal.
