WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
Like a needle and thread around the coast of the UK and Republic of Ireland, The Lifeboat Station Project is an unprecedented mission to capture the spirit behind a vital piece of our unique island life — the RNLI community.
The book and show can only be made once I’ve completed the work — in the meantime, I need help from people like you.
WHO’S BACKING THE PROJECT AT THE MOMENT?
For the first two years of its life, I entirely self-funded the Project with money raised through the The LSP Shop — in essence, my own form of crowdfunding.
However, since Autumn 2016, I’ve been fortunate enough to receive a small amount of funding from the RNLI, which partially covers my costs and goes some way to smoothing out the (sometimes terrifying) financial peaks and troughs.
But this funding doesn’t cover everything. I still rely on the support of amazing people like you to keep the Project on the road.
