Supporting the RNLI - the charity that saves lives at sea

Lymingtonlifeboatstation MediumNow in its 15th year, the Lymington 10K is Lymington RNLI's major fundraising event of the year. Lymington has had a Lifeboat since 1965. The charity provides, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service and a seasonal lifeguard service. The crew work hard in and for the local community and deserve our support.

 

Sponsorship is a great way to raise extra funds. If Gift Aid is used the value is increased by 25% at no cost to the donor. You can select Lymington 10K from the list of RNLI events at www.virginmoneygiving.com or www.justgiving.com.

 

Runners raising £25 or more will be entered in the prize draw; those raising more than £100 will get two chances. The person raising the highest sponsorship will receive a Chewton Glen Hotel dinner voucher for 2, valued at £160. Other prizes include: a £50 voucher for Lanes Restaurant, Lymington Shape Up Studio vouchers, wine and many other prizes! To qualify for the draw, monies must be received by 30 June 2016.
