Lytham St Annes RNLI says thank you to 'Leg It' fundraisers
All those who donated and participated in the successful 2020 fun run have been thanked by Lytham St AnnesRNLI.
The Lytham St Annes RNLI Lifeboat Station had an amazing response to the revised format for taking part in the annual Leg It for Lytham Lifeboats 5K Fun Run between the two RNLI boathouses.
Lytham St Annes fundraising branch chairman Digby Moulden has produced a letter of thanks for all who participated and donated or helped in any way towards the success of the month long event.
In the letter he says:
'On behalf of all the crew and volunteers at Lytham St Annes RNLI, I would like to express my sincere and huge thanks to everybody who has contributed to the success of our Leg It for the Lifeboats which was held throughout the month of September. To date we have raised just short of £11,000. All the money raised will go to the running of our lifeboat stations and lifeboats at Lytham and St Annes.'
'I would also like to thank our crew members and volunteers who have done the walk, some many times over.'
