Dedicated to a great cause, this lifeboat themed collaboration includes some truly inspiring cakes. Sugar Shipmates are proud to be supporting The Lifeboat Fund’s 150th Anniversary Appeal, celebrating the start of this charity in 1866. The goal is a truly exceptional Shannon class, all-weather lifeboat, designed by the RNLI to have the speed and manoeuvrability that are vital in saving lives.
The RNLI rescues 23 people on average every day. Its volunteer lifeboat crews are ready to respond to shouts in all weathers and at all times of the day and night. These men and women come from all walks of life but share a commitment to saving lives at sea. Volunteers are often called away from work, home comforts and deep sleep to brave conditions that test their skill, strength and courage. Their lifesaving work is essential, often difficult and can be life-threatening.
From over 235 lifeboat stations around the coasts of the UK and Republic of Ireland, the charity’s lifeboats launched 8,462 times in 2014, rescuing 8,727 people and saving 368 lives. In total, the RNLI has saved over 140,000 lives since it was formed in 1824.
Here are just some of the beautiful creations in this collaboration…
