35. Pay it Forward: Lise Vittrup


There’s more than one way to save a life – RNLI Shop manager Lise Vittrup on why she’s giving back 

Lise Vittrup grew up with a healthy respect for the sea. Yet in 1995, when she was a student in Brighton, she was taken off guard by powerful waves. Swept out to sea and unable to swim to shore, she clung to the struts of Brighton pier, smashed by unrelenting waves. 

Hear how Lise’s rescue unfolded – and how her gratitude to the crew led her to join the RNLI’s lifesaving family.
