Allergy Advice

If you are allergic or intolerant to any food, please let us know by indicating it in the RSVP part of this invitation.

Whilst the RNLI endeavours to avoid any cross contamination, when processing a specific allergen free order, their kitchen does not have a specific allergen free zone.

Deep fried wheat and gluten dishes will use the same fryers in the kitchen as dishes not containing these ingredients – there may be a risk of cross contamination, which could affect extremely sensitive sufferers.

For more information about any of their dishes please ask a member of the RNLI College team by e-mailing to, or phone +44 (0)1202 663489.

When you register for the European Regional Meeting 2017, we will ask you if you would like to participate with the H.E.R.O. Awards Dinner, and you will be asked to indicate which courses you would like, and if you have any food allergies/intolerance.
