This was the day that the ‘Cycle to Save’ sponsored bike ride event to raise necessary funds to support the RNLI, was carried out. The young Cyclists had enjoyed organising the event and equally enjoyed completing 8 laps of Norman Park which is situated in Bromley, Kent.

The event successfully raised £1120.00 for the RNLI and was presented to the Dungeness Lifeboat Station Volunteers on 10th January 2015. The visit to the Dungeness Lifeboat Station was very informative, including a talk by Dungeness RNLI lifeboat coxswain, Stuart Adams, a tour of the station and its new Shannon class lifeboat The Morrell.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. The volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland from 236 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree.

    That is excellent – the RNLI is one of most worthy charities to support – the police, ambulance and fire service are all government funded but the coast guard (maybe not as busy but still extremely important) relies 100% on donations. WELL DONE

      Hey Windy.
      Dont want to be pernickety but you may need to check some things first..

      HM Coastguard and RNLI are entirely different organisations that do work closely together.

      HM Coastguard is Government funded (albeit facing some hefty cuts to their budget) and RNLI is a Registerd Charity which relies solely on donations and bequests etc.
