THE family of Haydn Griffiths have taken on a running challenge to give back to RNLI volunteers this winter.

Haydn Griffiths, from Lowton, near Wigan, drowned following an ill-fated attempt to swim to the wind turbines in Liverpool Bay after entering the water near Derby Pool in New Brighton on Tuesday, July 19, 2022.

Following extensive searches by the RNLI, Haydn’s family, and members of the local community, the 23-year-old’s body was found five days later by the coastguard near the Marina in Crosby.

Following the tragic accident, Haydn’s family and friends are working to raise awareness and campaign around water safety.

Haydn’s sisters Megan and Brogan Griffiths alongside the rest of Team Stay Safe For Haydn are taking part in the Reindeer run Challenge for RNLI Lifesavers.

The team is running 24 miles throughout December while raising money for RNLI volunteers. So far, the team, who are in the top three leader board, have raised £690.

Morgan said: “It's not too late to join our team and complete 24 miles throughout December. Improve your fitness, raise awareness for the RNLI, and even feed the birds whilst you are out and about.

“If you do want to donate £1 or £2 please scroll to the bottom of our page and sponsor an individual Team member to help them reach their target. All money raised by each team member will go into the team #staysafeforhaydn fundraising pot straight to the RNLI and help fund their lifesaving work.”
