Raising funds for Lifeboats

Salcombe Field of Light has been donated to the RNLI and our community by the world renowned artist Bruce Munro to raise funds for RNLI Lifeboats and equip our volunteer crews. In the RNLI’s 200th year we will welcome guests free of charge to view the Field of Light from viewing points along the whole of Salcombe Harbour front.

You can donate to Salcombe Field of Light  to commemorate Lifeboat volunteers over the last 200 years, in memory of a loved one of your own, to support the next generation of RNLI volunteers or you may have your own personal reasons to help the RNLI.

The Field of Light spans over 35,000 square meters of steep Devon hillside opposite Salcombe town, on the edge of the estuary.

The art installation will feature an array of 20,000 lowlight, fibre-optic stemmed spheres that will illuminate with a slow, subtle change of hue.

Why support Salcombe Field of Light?

Glenn was pulled from the sea by RNLI Crew on Fathers Day 2022.

Without our Lifeboat Crew this picture would never have been taken on Fathers Day in 2023.
