Many people choose to enter a triathlon to raise money for an official event charity or for a cause close to their own heart. The Eastbourne Triathlon welcomes and encourages all entrants to use the event to raise money for charities, but we do have two very special official charities that we are supporting in 2018.

The Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards and St Wilfrid’s Hospice are both fantastic charities that rely on the support of the local community to continue to do their fantastic work. By raising money and racing for them, you are making a real difference to the lives that they support.

Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards

Established in 1948, Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards has been training lifesaving and promoting water safety within the local community for over 65 years. We offer training and qualifications in water safety skills, personal survival skills, water-based rescue skills and first aid skills, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

In addition to training, our club has and continues to actively take part in a large variety of lifesaving competitions at all ages. Taking part ensures lifesaving skills continue to develop and we stay fit in the process. Our club is affiliated to the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and Surf Life Saving GB (SLS GB). As such we aim to deliver a range of the courses available and support them in their aims.

You can make a voluntary donation to the Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards when you enter the Eastbourne Triathlon or the EVL will be fundraising at the event. Please give generously.
