Byline: RNLI supporters prove they are all super savers
Page Content:

The Royal National Lifeboat Institute is in the business of saving lives and their supporters have also proved themselves super savers – generating more than £5,200 by simply depositing their cash in their RNLI charity savings accounts with Furness Building Society, the UK’s Best Regional Building Society 2013 awarded by Mortgage Finance Gazette.

The Furness makes an annual payment to the RNLI from the Society’s funds – not the savers’ cash – based on the average deposits in the charity savings accounts, so the more they save the bigger the annual payment to the Institute.

The presentation of £5,200 was made at the Roa Island lifeboat station in Barrow-in-Furness to Catherine Kaye, the RNLI’s corporate partnerships manager for the North, by the Furness Partnerships and Affinities Manager Ian Quayle.  Pictured with them (left) in front of Barrow’s Tamar class lifeboat ‘Grace Dixon’ is John Falvey the vice chairman of Barrow RNLI.

John commented: “This partnership with the Furness Building Society is a ‘win win’ situation. The savers receive a good rate of interest on their savings in their charity savings accounts and at the end of each year the RNLI receives a payment from the Society’s own funds, so it costs our supporters nothing but guarantees vital support for the lifeboats.   We rely solely on donations from the public to fund our lifesaving work and the £5,200 is a welcome addition to our income.”

Ian Quayle explained: “The sea is part of our local heritage in Furness so the Society is delighted to support such an important service.  Our new e-Savings facility means that RNLI supporters across the country can easily open and manage their charity savings accounts on-line to support the Lifeboats’ life-saving work.”
