GJW Direct announce a new association with the RNLI

Royal National Lifeboat Institution

Earlier this year, GJW Direct announced a new association with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution as an official supporter of the RNLIs Lifejacket Clinics. Lev Osman, Chief Executive Officer, GJW Direct added, GJW is committed to making sure our customers and audience are fully aware of the importance of staying safe at sea, whether racing enthusiasts, leisure sailing, living on board a boat, or taking the family on a sailing holiday - everyone should know the basics of staying safe on and around water and maintaining their lifejacket(s) in full working order. The RNLIs Respect the Water campaign plays a significant role in this, and we are very proud to be working in conjunction with the RNLI on this initiative. To read more about the association, take a look at the article on the RNLI website.
