Ninety members of the South Essex Caravan Club spent the first week of August at Hunstanton.

Rally organiser Claire Green visited the volunteer crew at the town's RNLI station to present £500 raised by the outing, along with caravanners Holly Green, Grace Chapman and Kayleigh Mack.

'We've been coming for 15 years and we donate most times we come,' said Mrs Green.

'They do an amazing job, they need all the help they can get.'

Notes for editors

Hunstanton RNLI operates both the Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Spirit of West Norfolk and hovercraft Hunstanton Flyer from its station on Sea Lane.

The lifesaving work of its volunteer crew would not be possible without supporters who donate to the RNLI.
