|Chiswick RNLI Lifeboat Crew Do it On Foot|
22 mile challenge in full survival kit will merit every penny of sponsorship!
To support the RNLI’s national fundraising SOS day on 30th January, Station manager Wayne Bellamy and the crew are travelling the 22 miles from RNLI lifeboat station in Teddington to the RNLI Tower Bridge lifeboat station.
Wayne announced “We are doing it ON FOOT, along the Thames Path, wearing full RNLI Protective Equipment - Drysuits, Lifejackets, Helmets, Boots, etc. It should be quite a sight, and a gruelling 8 or 9 hour journey”
Walking 22 miles in equipment designed for survival at sea will be quite a challenge and will merit every penny of sponsorship earned.
The crew will pause at Chiswick Lifeboat station for rest and refreshment at the halfway point on their journey
