Micd-up-–-for-saving-lives-at-sea!

Byline: A group of students and teachers from King Ethelbert School in Birchington have presented a cheque for £150 to Margate RNLI lifeboat station, money they raised after staging a concert as part of their studies.
Page Content: The group of year 11 Music BTEC students were given a task to organise a concert they were to call MIC’D UP. The idea was to showcase the school’s talented students and teachers. As many teachers as possible were ‘recruited’ to perform with the students, some of the teachers were reported to have hidden talents!

The students who organised MIC’D UP were: Matthew Cowell, Gaby George, Ellie-Perry Taylor, Jess Mantel, Ellisha Allen, Ronnie Skelton and Jack Murray and today (18 December 2015) they handed the cheque over to members of the lifeboat crew after which they were given a tour of the station and a chance to look over the all-weather lifeboat.

Peter Barker, deputy launching authority said: “Well done to the students and staff who organised the concert and a big thank you for choosing the RNLI as their chosen charity, the money raised will go directly towards saving life at sea. It is also important for us to highlight our work to young people such as these, they could potentially be future RNLI lifeboat crewmembers and lifeguards.”
