Lions thank lifeboat and coastguards for sea dip help

Torbay Weekly

Paignton Lions Club has thanked both coastguards and Torbay Lifeboat for their help on the Lions' Boxing Day Sea Dip at Paignton.

Lions gave them each £150 of goodies for when they come in from a 'shout'.

The Walk into the Sea raises funds for local good causes and was this year watched by hundreds of spectators, both locals and visitors.

Joining those who took part was Torbay MP Kevin Foster.

The event is a sponsored Walk into the Sea with participants being able to allocate 50 per cent of their sponsorship monies to a charity/good cause of their choosing with the remainder going to the Lions chosen charities.
