Crew members of the RNLI lifeboat in Lyme Regis set off on a 77-mile seafront walk on Sunday (February 11).

They are raising money for the life-saving charity and to mark the beginning of its 200th anniversary.

The aim of the walk was for teams of four to complete a combined total of 200 laps of Marine Parade on the resort’s seafront and to collect donations at the same time.

The walk was the first event for the crew in a busy year of local projects celebrating the RNLI’s two centuries of saving lives at sea.

Crew members, their families and the RNLI mascot Stormy Stan – heavily disguised shore crew Gareth Roscoe – all took part while a regular Sunday morning training session was held simultaneously.

Organiser Dave Holland said: “We had a great turn out of volunteers, and the mild weather meant we had some wonderful donations from our supporters.”
