Beavers RNLI Visit

This week Ballymoney Beavers visited Fred at the RNLI boathouse in Portrush. They learned about keeping safe at the beach by wearing sun hats and sun cream and to protect their feet with old shoes/crocs. Fred told them all about the lifeguards and the importance of swimming/paddling in between the red and yellow flags. He also explained how to get help in an emergency.

Then the Beavers were shown around areas not normally open to the public. First stop, the changing room ….

Then down to see the dry suit and helmet worn when going out on the small life boat…

Finally upstairs to see the RNLI office…

Thank you to all the Beavers for donating money to the RNLI during our visit. They have all been given a small jar to fill with 5p’s to raise some more funds for this important, lifesaving charity.
