Belinda and James Richardson set off last week in their Porsche 911 on a coastal tour to raise more than £50,000 for the lifesaving charity.

The London couple, who describe themselves as “fervent supporters” of the RNLI with a “passion” for Porsches, aim to complete the challenge within 911 hours.

During their visit to Aldeburgh RNLI’s lifeboat station, the couple were ordered to try their hand at a new challenge.

In a social media post, the couple said: “Brilliant turn out Aldeburgh and boy did you put us through our paces having hit us to do our four minutes of exercise in your rowing machine.

The couple set off from Teddington lifeboat station on Thursday and will finish the challenge at Tower lifeboat station in London.
