The Longhope Lifeboat Museum Trust

Patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal


Next March 17, 2019 will be the 50th Anniversary of the Longhope Lifeboat Disaster

We will be holding a Commemoration event to remember the entire crew of eight men who tragically lost their lives when their lifeboat, the T.G.B capsized in mountainous seas while attending a ship in distress in the Pentland Firth.

We hope to raise £30,000 to carry out essential maintenance, restoration and improvements to the museum.

It stands as a tribute to the bravery of the lifeboat crews of Longhope over the years, whose stories are told and preserved between its walls. We need to ensure the survival of these precious artefacts and prepare it for the Commemoration next March.

Thank you.
