About

This is the 2nd fundraising page. The first, which raised £663.66, was closed when I added Mountain Rescue to my charities.

Hello, I'm Beth on 3rd October 2018 I gave up my home to attempt to walk around the entire coast of Britain, walking from lifeboat station to lifeboat station, to raise money and awareness for the Association of Lowland Search & Rescue, Mountain Rescue, and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)

Event details

Beth's charity British coast walk

The Association of Lowland Search & Rescue is the governing body for the 35 UK Lowland Rescue teams, providing official S&R coverage “From Hill to High Water”. They work with Police and the Fire Service to locate vulnerable missing people as well as offer drone support. LS&R are run entirely by volunteers and rely on donations to do their vital work.

Mountain Rescue team members are on call 24/7/365 to recover climbers, lost walkers, and injured and sick casualties. But they also help search for missing children and vulnerable adults, on and off the hills. They search river banks and swift water, and wade chest-deep through flooded urban streets. They also rescue a huge number animals from all manner of inaccessible places. Like Lowland Rescue, they are run entirely by volunteers and rely on donations to do their vital work.

The RNLI is the largest UK charity that saves lives at sea, through lifeboat search and rescue, lifeguards, water safety education and flood rescue. Giving these lifesavers (most of whom are unpaid volunteers) everything they need is costly. In 2017, it cost the RNLI £176.5M to run their lifesaving service, mostly funded by legacies and donations.

I remember, Beth, when you came on Sth Birmgham Ramblers walk, which I led from Kinver, I was so impressed by your determination and sense of purpose. I have followed your walk carefully on social media. You are doing so well - keep going
