Lifeboats News Release

Ian Marshall, a personal development consultant who runs a training company called Mejma, has pledged to donate the proceeds of a coaching course to the charity.

The two-hour introduction to a personal development programme called Achieve Your Dreams will be delivered at the Stephen Joseph Theatre on Wednesday 11 May, from 7-9pm.

Ian, who was head of Thomas Cook’s national training programme for three years, said: ‘Counselling can be good to help people recover from trauma and unhappiness and get back to ‘normal’.’

Coaching helps people with specific goals, people who need motivating, training and education to help with specific needs. On an individual basis I use all these techniques tailored to a person’s situation.’

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
