Lifeboat crews walked nearly 80 miles for the life-saving charity.

Crew members of the RNLI lifeboat in Lyme Regis walked 77 miles along the Marine Parade in the town to raise money for the cause.

The aim of the walk was for teams of four to complete a combined total of 200 laps of Marine Parade on the resort’s seafront and to collect donations at the same time.

Organiser Dave Holland said: “We had a great turn out of volunteers, and the mild weather meant we had some wonderful donations from our supporters.”

The walk was the first event for the crew in a busy year of local projects celebrating the RNLI’s two centuries of saving lives at sea.

Crew members, their families and the RNLI mascot Stormy Stan – heavily disguised shore crew Gareth Roscoe – all took part while a regular Sunday morning training session was held simultaneously.
