The money raised from SOS Day events in the south west will go towards new lifejackets for RNLI volunteers.
It costs between £2 000 and £4 500 to equip a station's volunteers with new lifejackets. The new jackets will provide a better fit and improve safety for volunteers, leading to greater efficiency in lifesaving.
