This Months Charity is:

The National Coastwatch Institution


The National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) is an entirely voluntary organisation keeping a visual watch along UK shores.

Each station assists in the protection and preservation of life at sea and around the UK coastline.

Currently 50 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2000 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Rossall Point in the North West, through Wales, to Wearside in the North East.

Whilst high technology and sophisticated systems are aids to improved safety, a computer cannot spot a distress flare, an overturned boat or a yachtsman or fisherman in trouble. Other vulnerable activities like diving, wind surfing and canoeing are made safer with visual surveillance.

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies, offering a variety of skills and experience and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.

Nearly 220,000 hours of organised coastal surveillance were completed in 2013 alone, all at no cost to the public. Funding is managed by a Board of Trustees with a constitution agreed by the Charity Commission and relies heavily on local support.

This payment will be processed by Chadmin and then passed to the charity at the end of the month with all other donations made for this charity.


If you would like to have your charity on this page you can fill the form out on the contact us page.

Any charity can be on this page but you will need to provide your charity number and contact details. Your charity will be on this page for one whole month and will give people the opportunity to support your organisation either financially or through volunteering. 

For people to be able to donate you will have to provide your account number and sort code and the name used for banking. If you have a website with a donations page we would be more than happy to provide a link for people to go through your website and make donations. 

If you have a membership scheme we are also more than happy to upload your membership joining form for the month as well. If there is anything else you would like to add that we have not mentioned we will be more than happy to help

regular donations

Regular donations help charities with their financial planning and add a certain level of stability to charities. If you are in a position to do so please do set up a regular donation to help charities. However please make sure you set up the regular giving directly to the charity and not through this website. It will be much easier for the charity and for us if you do it that way!

If you need help setting up the regular donation to the charity of your choice you should be able to get help from the charity itself. If they cant help you the next place to look for help would be your bank.
