Welly Walkers Put Best Foot Forward for RNLI

June 2017

 

Staff at The Seaton Lane Inn put their best foot forward - together - to raise over £300 to fund kit for The Royal National Lifeboat Institute’s volunteer crew members. 

Taking inspiration from the kit they were fundraising for, The Seaton Lane Inn’s Debbie Brown, Joanne Curtis, Keeley Mathewson and chef Jennifer Malkin wore their wellington boots for a three-mile, three-legged welly walk from the inn on Seaton Lane to the George Elmy lifeboat at East Durham Heritage and Lifeboat Centre. 

Debbie Brown of The Seaton Lane Inn said: “It was surprisingly hard work - the last time any of us had done three-legged walking was in the school ground! But we had a laugh and it was amazing to know we’ve raised so much money for the RNLI and the fantastic work it does to save lives at sea. As we are such a short distance from Durham’s heritage coast, we felt it was important to do our bit to raise funds for such a relevant charity.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported us in our walk - and to the staff at Seaham Marina and East Durham Heritage and Lifeboat Centre who gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived.” 

As well as raising funds through the welly walk, The Seaton Lane Inn has become a ‘Betty’s Jar’ pick up and drop off point, where customers can pick up small recycled jars called Betty’s 5p pots to fill with loose change and return these to the inns to be emptied, helping towards the cause.

The RNLI’s community fundraising manager for the North East Gill King said: Our crews rely on lifesaving kit, like their yellow wellies, lifejackets and helmets, when they go out in all weathers to save lives at sea. We are thrilled that The Seaton Lane Inn is helping to raise money for the RNLI and thank them for their support.”

The Seaton Lane Inn is supporting the RNLI

The Seaton Lane Inn gives it some welly for The RNLI

May 2017

The Seaton Lane Inn is helping to raise funds to buy vital kit for RNLI volunteer crews by supporting the charity’s annual national fundraising campaign. 

A vital piece of kit the inns are fundraising for are yellow wellies. And staff from The Seaton Lane Inn are taking inspiration from this by taking part in a three-legged welly race. 

Duos from the inn will hop, skip and jump the three-miles from the inn on Seaton Lane to Seaham’s Lifeboat Museum wearing their welly boots on Saturday June 10.  

Debbie Brown of The Seaton Lane Inn said: “We jumped at the chance to support the RNLI and the fantastic work it does to save lives at sea. As we are such a short distance from Durham’s heritage coast, we felt it was important to do our bit to raise funds for such a relevant charity – and have a laugh at the same time.” 

Debbie will be leading the three-legged teams from The Seaton Lane Inn as they make their way to Seaham Lifeboat at East Durham and Coastal Heritage centre at 11am. 

The Seaton Lane Inn has also become a ‘Betty’s Jar’ pick up and drop off point, where customers can pick up small recycled jars called Betty’s 5p pots to fill with loose change and return these to the inn to be emptied, helping towards the cause.

Paul Brown, general manager at The Seaton Lane Inn said: “The RNLI is an excellent charity and we are proud to be able to support them with the Betty’s jars campaign. We’re recycling and relabeling our own jam jars for the cause so they become mini-collection pots that are helping to save lives.” 

Sean Donkin, operations director at The Inn Collection Group which owns The Seaton Lane Inn said: “We are delighted to be supporting The RNLI across our pubs which are close to the coast and waterways. The RNLI does a superb and courageous job to save lives at sea and we hope to be able to help raise funds that will provide vital kit for their crew men and women.”

The RNLI’s community fundraising manager for the North East Gill King said: Our crews rely on lifesaving kit, like their yellow wellies, lifejackets and helmets, when they go out in all weathers to save lives at sea. We are thrilled that The Seaton Lane Inn are helping to raise money for the RNLI and thank them for their support.”
