m_DSC_0018Earlier in the summer brothers Jamie and Luke Regan set themselves the double challenge of tackling the gruelling Beachy Head Marathon in October and raising funds for Eastbourne lifeboats.  

Trainee lifeboat crewman Jamie and his brother Luke spent many hours jogging across the Downs in preparation for the 26 mile plus off road event which winds its way around some of the most stunning scenery in Sussex with the last six miles up and down the lung sapping Seven Sisters coastal path.

Not only did they complete the marathon but they also managed to raise a staggering £762.77 for Eastbourne lifeboats. To show the station’s appreciating of their efforts the pair were taken to Beachy Head aboard the all-weather lifeboat Diamond Jubilee and treated to mince pies and hot tea on their return.
