Who Are We
In the mid-1980's a group of late teens / early 20's got together and decided to do some good in the world. They organised various events at which a great time was had by all and much more importantly they raised lots of money for various charities. After a few sucessful years life started to get in the way and, if you will pardon the pun, The Red Sea Pedestrians parted.
After a twenty year break where they had all been busy starting and growing businesses and their families, The Red Sea Pedestrians re-formed with the same aim of giving something back to society but on a larger scale.
The remaining original members recruited some likeminded, dynamic individuals and on Saturday 14th February 2009 inspired by the brave battle against ovarian cancer of their very dear friend, the late Jacky Franks, they launched their first event and raised £35,000 for The Eve Appeal.
We are delighted to currently be helping Friends of Lancasterian. You can find out more about this under 'What We Do'
