‘Real torch relay’ passes through Louth and Mablethorpe in the death of night

James Pearson hands over to Keith Lamb for the Legbourne leg of the alternative torch relay.

IF you heard footsteps or saw a bright light in the night in Legbourne last week, it wasn’t an alien landing, it was local runner Keith Lamb!

Keith was taking part in the alternative Olympic Torch relay, which sees a second torch carried around the country entirely on foot, all in the name of a good cause.

Keith, of Mablethorpe, picked up the torch from James Pearson at Legbourne shortly before midnight on Monday, July 2, carrying it the 12 miles to his home town.

The previous runner James had carried the torch from North Thoresby and Keith passed it on to Jim Tinnion who had driven from Shropshire to carry it from Mablethorpe to Hogsthorpe.

The Endurane Life ‘real relay’ has so far raised over £5,000 for CHICKS, a charity providing respite breaks for disadvantaged children.

Keith will soon be turning his attentions to the 12 hour Hell on the Humber event in August, where he will be raising funds for St Bernard’s School in Louth and spreading awareness about the genetic disorder Fragile X.
