Station Crew ready for action

The station’s crew room was open for refreshments, cake stall, competitions and tombola from 10am – 3pm. A large number of people came along to support the event.

A number of the lifeboat station's volunteers have been affected by cancer, directly or indirectly, so they were inspired to raise funds for this Norfolk cancer charity.

The day went very well and the team was pleased to raise £665 with hopefully more funds to come in. Zoe Harris from The Big C also attended and was very pleased with all the efforts on the day.

Huge thanks must be extended to all the people who supported the event - which ensured that the team was able raise such a fantastic amount.
