Stormy Stan was swinging, what a sight to see. He said: 'Come on and do the boathouse rock with me.'

West Norfolk Rock Choir had the yellow wellies tapping when they stopped off at Hunstanton RNLI on Saturday 29 July.

The 70-strong singing group, whose members come from King's Lynn, Downham Market, Swaffham, Wisbech and Peterborough, were on a whistle-stop tour of the coast to raise funds for the charity which saves lives at sea.

'We're the West Norfolk Rock Choir and the lifeboat is a vital part of our community,' said choir leader Sally Rose.

'We all wanted to have a day at the seaside, so we thought let's raise some money for the RNLI.'

After belting out hits including the Four Tops' Going Loco Down In Acapulco, Fleetwood Mac's Go Your Own Way and Video Killed the Radio Star by Buggles, the choir set sail for Holme and Brancaster, before finishing up on The Green at Hunstanton.

The choir will be returning to The Green in Hunstanton on Saturday 2 September.

Notes to editors

Hunstanton's volunteer RNLI crew operate both an Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, Spirit of West Norfolk and the hovercraft Hunstanton Flyer.

The station on Sea Lane is one of the busiest in Norfolk.
