East Kent College staff and students visit Ramsgate RNLI during Community Week

EKC students and staff visited Ramsgate RNLI during their Community Week

Catering staff and students from East Kent College in Broadstairs paid a visit to Ramsgate RNLI station bearing homemade goodies made by the students as part of their Community Week last Thursday (March 29).

Earlier in the day they had taken Easter-themed cakes and savoury food to Ramsgate Fire Station, Bradstowe Court and, after visiting the RNLI, they planned to drop food off at Margate’s A&E.

A further team were out in Broadstairs giving food to those who are homeless and also to the volunteer staff in the charity shops.

Each year the first-year students, as well as some second-year students, carry out something different but the aim is always to give something back to the local community.

Ramsgate RNLI’s crew were happy to receive their gifts, which were enjoyed by everyone and as a thank you took the students on a tour of the RNLI all-weather boat, the Esme Anderson.
