Children taking up fundraising mantle – this time for RNLI

The RNLI is a huge part of their lives as their dad, Mike Tame, is a Bude lifeboat volunteer crew member and celebrated 20 years of service on the Bude Lifeboat crew last year.
Isla and Sennen will run, walk or cycle the distance between all the Cornish Lifeboat Stations between them. There are a total of 13 RNLI lifeboat stations around the coast of Cornwall, from Bude to Looe with the total distance being 228 miles, so they will do at least 114 miles each.
As this challenge is virtual it will be undertaken locally not actually between the stations.

Their dad, volunteer RNLI crew member, Mike Tame, said: ‘My kids are amazing, if any one can help them smash their target figure, it would make all their efforts worthwhile. They are super excited about the prospect of the challenge and ready to go.’

To accompany them their mum, Lisa, will also be running the total distance between 1 Feb to 31 March.
