YOU COULD be one of the few people to walk around the Beachy Head Lighthouse in a charity event being organised by the campaign to save the lighthouse stripes.

The Lighthouse Challenge takes place during a low spring tide on Saturday, May 5 at 4pm and the entry fee of £6 for adults and £2.50 for under 18s will go towards the cost of repainting the iconic stripes as well as a donation to the Chestnut Tree Hospice for children.

It is being organised by the Rotary Club of Eastbourne AM in conjunction with the Eastbourne Herald and the Keep the Stripes Facebook campaign group, which joined forces to raise more than £25,000 to repaint the red and white stripes after owners Trinity House said last year it could not afford to and the light tower should return to its natural granite grey.
