Walkers fundraiser for RNLI in Coast Path trek
09:00 15 September 2012
The group of supporters and volunteers took on the gruelling 16.5 mile trek to raise money for the Lifeboats.
LIFEBOAT volunteers and supporters have raised more than £1,300 walking for hours from Clovelly to Appledore lifeboat station.
The 26 walkers set off at 8am with the fastest walker, crew member Joy James, reaching the finish line five hours and 40 minutes later.
Many entrants stopped along the 16.5 mile trek to enjoy an ice cream after tackling the hardest part of the walk between Peppercombe and Westward Ho!
Steve Marvell, walk coordinator and crew member at Clovelly lifeboat station said: “The atmosphere at all the check points was excellent and it was great to see everyone finishing with a smile on their face.”
