So yesterday I got asked to photograph something very special... The scattering of ashes for a late husband, father and grandad. He volunteered for the RNLI, the launch of the lifeboat happened and we met them out at sea for the family to say their final goodbye, I can honestly say that will be a memory that will stick with me, to capture something so beautiful and touching was an absolute honour. The RNLI is charity funded, they’re on call 24-hours all day everyday and committed to saving lives. On average across the UK they save 22 lives a day! I decided to donate my earnings from yesterday to the RNLI and you can donate today too, just follow the link: Keep up the good work guys, we appreciate what you do for the community. Best, Nancy Calypso Photography x

:( Keep your eyes open for this. ...

We are saddened to announce that the historic gold medal awarded posthumously to the coxswain of the Penlee lifeboat the Solomon Browne is missing - we are appealing to the public for any information that will help its return. The gold gallantry medal, which is the highest award for bravery issued by the RNLI, is one of the most precious artefacts in our heritage collection. It was recently found to be missing from a secure heritage store in our head office in Poole. Despite an extensive search the medal has not been found and Police have been notified of a suspected theft. Anybody with any information about the medal’s location is urged to contact Dorset Police quoting incident number 02:136, or to contact us directly. More information can be found here:
