Bakers to the rescue

CHARMOUTH Primary School pupils were so impressed with the work of the RNLI that they immediately set to work fundraising.
A group of 90 pupils went on an educational visit to the lifeboat station in Lyme Regis where senior crew member Phil Ball told them about the volunteers who go to sea to save lives.
When they went back to their classes they decided they would say thank you for their visit by baking biscuits and selling them for 10p each after the school’s open assembly today.
Teacher Heidi Daniel said: “The children were very impressed when they heard that the lifeboat crew are all volunteers and go to sea in dangerous conditions to help other people.
“So, as part of our project about the sea, the children decided to bake some lemon and ginger biscuits at home and to sell them in aid of the RNLI.”
