Coral Island joins in the RNLI 'Leg it for the Lifeboats' Fundraiser


 

Fundraising

Coral Island wanted to do something to show our gratitude to the RNLI and for the local people who volunteer their time to help the RNLI stations and crew the lifeboats.

We read about the RNLI 'Leg-it' activity in September and we wanted to join in the efforts and sponsor our staff to make the 5 kilometer run between the Lytham Boathouse and the St Annes RNLI boathouse.

Leg it for the Lifeboats fundraiser

Content from the RNLI website:

"During the whole of September 2020, you can take up the challenge of the 5.65 km (or 3.5 miles) route from our Lytham boathouse (on Central Beach, FY8 5LG) to our St Annes boathouse on South Promenade, Eastbank Road, FY8 1SJ). Everyone is welcome runners, walkers, toddlers, pram pushers, dog walkers, wheel chair and mobility scooter users. Fancy dress is not necessary but if you wish to dress up to brighten the day please do so. The beauty of having a month to complete the challenge is that it up to you when you can fit it in to your time schedule and you can take part any time of day on any day of the week. There is the added bonus of using our brand new, just opened promenade coastal path from Lytham to the beach at St Annes which, providing the weather is good, gives great views over the Ribble Estuary and the Irish Sea to the Welsh mountains. We are hoping to raise £3,000.00 which is the average monthly running cost of Lytham St Annes lifeboat stations."
