Balcas: one of Britain's and Ireland's largest wood products suppliers

To celebrate the end of #VolunteersWeek we had a quick Q&A with Jonny…

June 7th, 2019

Who, What, Where, When and Why?

Who:     Jonathan Robinson, Remanufacturing Unit Process Engineer

What:    Volunteer Crew member at the Enniskillen RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution).

Where:  Enniskillen Yacht Club. The Enniskillen lifeboat was the first RNLI inland station to operate in Northern Ireland

When:   Every Thursday for training & anytime in between…

Why:      To play with the big toys & for the burgers on a Thursday evening of course! Joking aside, the reason I volunteer is to give something back to an organisation that has helped so many people in our local community; to gain new skills, knowledge and experience from an fantastic group of local people who give their of own free time to teach others and make you feel a valued part of a team.

95% of the RNLI’s total income comes from donations. The donations they receive help courageous RNLI volunteers answer the call for help from anyone who needs them – at any time of day or night, in all weather conditions.
