We are delighted to announce that we exceeded our target for the Thomas Schmidt Lifeboat appeal and that we will start construction of a new boat in October. The boat will be a Hahn Class boat, which will be put inside one of our Lifeboat in a Box mobile lifeboat stations.
Due to the success of the first appeal, we have decided that we will try to raise enough money to pay for a Lifeboat in a Box, which we will also name after Thomas.
We will be constructing the Lifeboat in a Box with the students of Atlantic College, the school where Thomas became a RNLI crew member and the instructor of the Founder of Atlantic Pacific. This is the type of project that we know Thomas would have been first in line to get involved with.
