Stormy Stan took time out of his busy schedule on Saturday to assist Filey Lifeboat Crew deliver a yellow welly from Filey to Flamborough Lifeboat Station as part of the RNLI welly challenge.

Accompanied by crew members Vanessa Thomas, Paul Taylor and Fraser Haddington, Stormy Stan made his way by mobility scooter calling in at Haven Group Holiday Centres at Primrose Valley, Reighton and Thornwick Bay, along the way. He also met up with Dolly the lifeguard who also helped him raise funds.

The RNLI’s Mayday campaign began on Monday 1 May and will run for the whole month, with fundraising events taking place across the UK and Ireland. This year, the RNLI hopes to raise £750,000 through Mayday, which will be used to fund essential kit for the charity’s volunteer lifeboat crews.

Crews at eight Yorkshire lifeboat stations have been challenged to come up with innovative ways of conveying the welly from Staithes in the north to Spurn Point in the south, this month.
On Saturday, a team of four from Whitby RNLI tricycled across the moors to deliver the welly to Scarborough lifeboathouse.
From Filey, the next stages in the relay will see the welly being taken to Flamborough, Bridlington, Withernsea and the Humber lifeboat station at Spurn Point.

Barry Robson, Filey Lifeboat Coxswain/Mechanic, who was at Coble Landing, Filey, to see Stormy Stan set off said:

“Having the correct kit is vital for the crew here at Filey both for our all-weather lifeboat and inshore lifeboat teams. Any money given goes a long way to help us reach our target and I would like to thank everyone who has supported us en-route. Special thanks must go to Stormy Stan, Dolly and the crew who spent time raising money for Filey RNLI.”
