Kite Clothing and the RNLI

We’re delighted to let you know that Kite and the RNLI continue to team up and this season we have added to our bespoke range of baby clothes.

Designed for the youngest members of your crew, your little ones can look the part this summer and you can help to support the RNLI's good work.

The charity, based right on our doorstep in Poole, Dorset, has been saving lives at sea for nearly 200 years.

Read on to learn more about the RNLI and the styles we’ve developed together, and to pick up some tips to help you stay safe at the beach.

About the RNLI

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. Funded by donations, their volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, their seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches, and their Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding. They also work with organisations around the world to raise awareness of drowning and increase prevention and rescue capacity.

The volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 143,000 lives since 1824 and their youth education and water safety work has helped to prevent countless more from getting into danger. Today, an amazing 95% of the RNLI is made up of volunteers - ordinary people doing extraordinary things to help save lives at sea.

The collection

We have been working in collaboration with the RNLI for four years and this season we’ve added a new style to the collection. The lifeboat inspired designs are all made with 100% organic cotton offering perfect comfort and fit. Not only that, but all purchases help raise funds towards saving lives at sea.

The garments can be purchased directly from the RNLI's online shop or you may find them in one of the various RNLI stores around the UK. You can find your nearest RNLI shop here.
