Story

In June 2014 my son and 9 year old granddaughter were kayaking with the Blyth Kayak Club out at sea off Blyth beach.  Unfortunately the sea conditions changed when they were trying to get back to the beach and my granddaughter found she was unable make it back to safely.  Thankfully Blyth RNLI were close by and were able to give her and her boat a lift back.  My son had made it back to the beach safely but after walking back into the sea to try to help his daughter got stuck in a rip current.  The lifeboat was then sent back out to pick him up.  The full story can be seen here - https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152820200763999&pnref=story

To say thank you to the RNLI I have decided (at the young age of 72) to throw myself out of a plane 2.5 miles above the ground and see how much money I can raise for them.

Please donate what you can to this great charity.
