LIFEBOAT crews have released launch figures for last year ahead of a day of fundraising.
Hayling Island RNLI answered 102 calls for help in 2010, down from 120 the year before. But the number of emergencies requiring the help of Portsmouth RNLI increased – from 95 in 2009 compared to 104 in 2010. The numbers were released ahead of the RNLI’s annual SOS Day, which this year takes place on Friday.
