Seth helped launch the RNLI’s SOS Day in London on Web 24 Sep, performing new single Solomon Browne for RNLI volunteers aboard a Tamar class lifeboat on the River Thames.

SOS Day aims to raise £1 million for the RNLI. The national theme for this year’s campaign is Sound or Silence, and it’s hoped hundreds of RNLI supporters throughout the UK will be holding SOS themed events culminating on SOS Day on Friday 30 January 2009.

The RNLI provides nine out of 10 UK sea rescue launches, and relies on voluntary contributions for its income. Last year alone the RNLI rescued almost 8,000 people, an average of 21 people every day.
