During our ‘Land Ahoy’ topic Year 2 discovered the importance of water safety and different types of boats the RNLI use. They identified where RNLI stations are located within the United Kingdom, plotting the Gravesend RNLI Lifeboat Station. On Monday 11th October, we all dressed in orange to raise a staggering £356.78 to support the RNLI.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of this charity, making up 95% of RNLI people. They give their time for free. There are over 5,500 volunteer crew members and over 3,500 volunteer shore crew at 238 lifeboat stations around the UK and Ireland. The donations we raised will help provide further training, kits, rescue equipment, lifeboats and lifeboat stations to save lives at sea.
