Campaigners who raised thousands of pounds to repaint the iconic Beachy Head Lighthouse have organised a third charity walk to the landmark later this year. The Rotary Club of Eastbourne AM has set the date for Saturday August 1 when people can walk from outside Bede’s School, down across the beach to the repainted lighthouse.

Regular updates on how to register for the walk will be on www.keepthebeachyhead
lighthousestripes.org as and when they are confirmed to coincide with tide times.

Two previous walks raised hundreds of pounds for charities including Keep the Stripes, initially set up to raise £30,000 to meet the cost of repainting the lighthouse when owner Trinity House said it could not justify the cost.
