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.
Since Autumn 2016, I’ve been fortunate enough to receive a small contribution from the RNLI in return for the charity using the images to promote their work.
This contribution goes some way to smoothing out the (sometimes terrifying) financial peaks and troughs. So, I still rely on the support of the amazing people who love following the journey and appreciate what it takes to keep it on the road.
On 9th November 2017, I launched a brand new way for extra-keen fans and followers the chance to be extra-rewarded:
FRIENDS OF THE PROJECT
Friends of the Project are those who’ve kindly given their time, services or financial donations to The Lifeboat Station Project.
If you’d like to help, simply make a donation using the buttons on this page or contact me if you’re able to offer assistance in any other way — accommodation or assistance, for example.
To date, I’ve received individual contributions ranging from £5 to £1,000. Whatever the amount, I’m so grateful as I’m fully aware that everybody’s circumstances are different.
As a thank you for donating, your name will be listed as a Friend of the Project on a special page in the final book.
