MEMBERS from an RNLI service will embark on a challenge in aid of other rescue teams.

Lifeguards from RNLI Scarborough will take on a 10-mile ‘stretcher challenge’ to raise funds for of RNLI Flamborough and RSPB Bempton.

The group of approximately 23 lifeguards will carry a colleague on a stretcher, rotating every mile. They aim to raise £1,000 to be shared between the RNLI Flamborough and RSPB Bempton.

RNLI Lifeguard Supervisor, Dave Brant, said: “This is a great way for us to end our season. Our lifeguards are in top shape from the summer, but this will still be a challenge.

“The money raised will be split between two local charities, which are important to the lifeguards. A JustGiving page has been set up and we’d truly appreciate any donations.”
