Today RNLI Rye Harbour welcomed two special visitors, Beth Barratt and Kate Bourn, who plan to visit 100 lifeboat stations around the coast of England and Wales over the next two months. Starting on Monday, September 7 with heavily-laden bicycles at Poole, the headquarters of the RNLI, they headed east. Kate and Beth have set up a page for donations: justgiving.com/fundraising/lifeboatlasses
They told us that today was an easy day – only 80 kilometres! Yesterday had been much more taxing with 130.5 kilometres covered. They were really pleased to be offered a cup of tea and home-made cake. Thank you to Claire for the baking and Paul Bolton, lifeboat operations manager, gave them a pin badge to mark their visit.
They are keen water-goers, kayaking, paddle-boarding, surfing and sailing, and understand and appreciate the amazing job that the RNLI volunteers do. This is why they are so keen to raise very much needed funds for the charity that Saves lives at Sea.
Please give generously as this is no mean feat and they have yet to encounter the Welsh hills and valleys.
