Entry Fees and Donations
The entry fees for the Seaford Head 10K will go to support two charities, the amounts being split on a 50/50 basis, Martello Rotary and RNLI.
So how would it work? As before everybody who enters will pay an entry fee, (£10 per entry or £5 for the 1K) and we will split the entry fee 50/50 between RNLI and Rotary charities. However we would also encourage you to also set up your individual sponsorship page, where you can choose donations to go to either or both of these two charities.
Martello Rotary need funds to support the numerous requests received from local organisations, e.g. Foodbank, Seaford Volunteers, Youth Counselling, and many others. These are often not well known or large organisations, but usually consist of a few unsung heroes, working hard to help those less fortunate in the community, but often needing a little financial help just to carry on. Obviously this year has put many under immense strain, with demand for services massively increasing whilst fundraising opportunities have been reduced. Martello Rotary is one of a number of local organisations that seek to help out.
Newhaven RNLI have had to cancel their fundraising fete. This was to be their biggest fundraising event of the year, and along with all other events they had planned since March it is a huge blow to their fundraising totals.
Every penny raised from their events goes to the RNLI and funds the boats, equipment, kit, training etc, and the loss of income this year due to Covid-19 has had a massive impact.
Yet the lifeboat crews have never stopped being on call 24/7, ready and willing to save lives. They still need protective crew kit and fuel to launch their lifeboats. And their lifeboat stations and lifeboats still need to be maintained and repaired. Your charity support can help them weather the storm. With you beside them, they’ll always be ready, right now and in the future.

We hope that you will agree that these virtual races will provide yet another excellent opportunity for you to help local charities who are having serious funding problems because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
