Designed to be used with adults and children, the box includes every day objects as well as bespoke manufactured items. The aim was to raise awareness about key RNLI messages, but to also evoke a real appreciation of what it was like to be a crew member - the stresses, the training and the personal skills. Some of the box's objects include:
RNLI staff and volunteer comments:
“I love the box with its endless possibilities”
“It adapted wonderfully to all age groups”
“Interaction with the public was good and the added interest was noticeable”
“It made an immediate impact which was an exciting platform to work from."
