The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Robert Kenneth James

My Ken was a man of great talent, always willing to help his family, friends and associates. Although he ended up in the teaching profession, his early years as a shipwright and ships carpenter gave him an insight to the wonderful work that the RNLI coped with and how ordinary men would go that extra mile to save a strangers life. He knew what the sea could do.

Our children and grandchildren whilst on holiday at the coast always visited the local lifeboat station and popped their pennies in the 'lifeboat', which I hope they will continue.
