They are running a competition with some prizes in store for the winners.

The Salisbury, Wilton and District branch of the RNLI is asking youngsters in the area to enter their drawing competition. 

They want them to make a picture relating to the work of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution

The charity was originally set up in 1824 and aims to keep people safe at sea. 

Anyone up to 16 years old has got until Monday (18th May) to get their drawings entered into the competition. 

The picture must be on a sheet of A4 paper using any medium of choice.

Entries are free, but have to be mailed or scanned and sent via email to, along with the entry form. 

There are three classes: 

  • Under 7s
  • 7 - 11 year olds
  • 12 - 16 year olds

The Earl and Countess of Pembroke will judge the competition and the prizes include a special celebration visit to Mudeford Lifeboat Station

Branch chairman, Ray Stedman, said:

"We thought it would be good to organise a painting competition to help keep children amused in these difficult times.

The theme is anything to do with the great work that the RNLI does saving lives at sea and on our beaches. The brave crews are still on call 24/7 and the station we particularly support at Mudeford has been on shouts already during this quarantine period."

This competition is in addition to RNLI's home schooling sessions, which they are running every week to help teach young people all about sea safety.
