Ramsgate RNLI volunteer crew treated to Easter Treats by East Kent Catering Coll
This Easter staff and students from East Kent Catering College in Broadstairs paid a visit to Ramsgate RNLI station bearing home made goodies made by the students for the volunteer crew, as part of their Community Week.
Ramsgate RNLI’s crew were happy to receive their gifts, which were enjoyed by all the crew and family. Then as a thank you, they were taken on a tour of the RNLI All-weather boat ,the Esme Anderson which delighted the students. Maybe a few budding volunteers were amongst them?

Key facts about the RNLI
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.
The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
