The charities

Will Lashenko Cross

The South West Stint are raising money for the Will Cross Fund and the RNLI. As we are raising money for two charities, the just giving page has been set up as a crowdfunding page. This allows us to raise the money which will then be sent off after the event to the designated charities. When donating please let us know how you would like your donation split, thank you. To ensure we keep this as accurate as possible, we will also be contacting any one who donates, to ensure we are handling their donation as they fully intended.

Weʼre aiming to raise £1,500 to support the foundation established in memory of Will Lashenko Cross, used to assist young people fulfil their dreams and aspirations.

On the 28th May 2016, Will Lashenko Cross passed away, aged just 17, following a severe case of hydrocephalus. Friends and family are still in complete shock after the sudden death of an incredibly talented and loved young man. 

In his memory, a charitable foundation is being established that will be used to assist young people to fulfil their dreams and aspirations in areas of life about which Will was passionate. 

The South West Stint will be raising money that will be donated to the fund.

During our challenge, we also wish to support a second charity in which the team behind the South West Stint feel passionately about, the RNLI; the charity that saves lives at sea. They provide, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service. With their lifeboats, lifeguards, safety advice and flood rescue, they are committed to saving lives, and rescue, on average, 22 lives every day. Being lovers of the sea around the south coast, we want to donate money to this fantastic charity so that they can continue to save lives.
