Both of the lifeboats moored alongside the Jetty in Broadstairs’ Viking Bay (which is patrolled by RNLI Lifeguards) for some 3 hours during the high “spring” tide and were visited by 524 people of all ages who were shown around the station’s all weather Trent class boat by crew members.

The appreciative visitors donated a total of £250.90 towards RNLI funds and were still queueing and donating when the boats had to leave as the tide dropped. In addition to the boat being at the event members of the RNLI station’s fundraising branch “manned” a RNLI stall selling £287.75 worth of souvenirs.
