A NEW way to raise lifeboat funds has been launched for the young and fit, or those with a desire for a fun day out.

Grab your friends, family and work-mates and join in with an exciting day of paintballing on Sunday, September 16, at Hungarian Hall, Pettistree, near Woodbridge, Suffolk.

All you have to do is raise just £100 in sponsorship and have a fantastic day of fun and excitement in aid of the RNLI.

After arriving on site and registering, participants get kitted out with paintball equipment.

A briefing on the rules, being divided into teams and also given a rundown of the day's events follows before going off to the firing range to be given a demonstration on how to use your paintball gun.

After a morning of various game scenarios there will be a short break when food is available.

This is followed by an afternoon of more paintball fun.

There are usually ten-15 games throughout the day, the longest being 20 minutes.

If you get shot out early in a game, there's not long to wait for the next one.

Time for a quick coffee to revive the system and then on to the next game.

The games are usually concluded at about 4 pm.
