Ramsgate RNLI launch their 2017 calendar

Lifeboats News Release

Following the success of this year’s calendar fundraisers at Ramsgate RNLI Lifeboat Station have just received the 2017 edition from the printers.

Next year’s calendar contains another set of photographs of the station’s lifeboats, past and present, off the Thanet coast, many from the stations archives.

Once again everyone at the lifeboat station wishes to thank Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems Ltd. for their generous donation of £150 towards printing costs.

The calendars are available at the RNLI shops at the Customs House, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate and Harbour Street, Broadstairs and cost £5 with all profits going to the RNLI. For postal copies please email Sarah Hewes at sarah.hewes@outlook.com for information.
