Fundraisers ready to stride out for the lifeboats
Following its successful ‘yellow wellies’ day at Tesco, the Seaton, Beer and District branch of the RNLI is planning another big fundraising event this weekend.
The Mayday Appeal Walk will take place on Sunday, May 15, with registration at Axe Yacht Club at 10am.
The trek is from there, along the seafront to the end of the West Walk and back again - a distance of some two-and-a-quarter kilometres.
People are invited to go along and complete the walk once in return for a minimum donation of £5 to the RNLI.
