Lawrence Dallaglio walks miles of River Thames to raise money for RNLI
Rugby World Cup winner Lawrence Dallaglio has walked 18 miles along the River Thames in support of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
The former Wasps player trekked from Wood’s Quay in Waterloo to Teddington, to mark 20 years since the RNLI started having a lifesaving presence on the Thames.
Four RNLI stations – at Tower, Chiswick, Teddington and Gravesend – were opened in 2002 as a result of an enquiry into the Marchioness Disaster in 1989. It claimed the lives of 51 people, including Lawrence’s sister Francesca.
