Businesses on the Norfolk coast have backed the ‘outstanding work’ of the RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crews with a £5,000 donation.

L&J Leisure which owns the Lodge Hotel at Old Hunstanton and the Briarfields Hotel at Titchwell, along with JJ Wilson Ltd, which owns the village shop in Old Hunstanton, handed over the cheque to Hunstanton Lifeboat Station.

It was presented to Lifeboat Operations Manager Rigil Kent by Brittany Taberner, Manager of the Lodge Hotel.

Mrs Taberner said: "The money was raised through carrier bag sales at the village shop and charity money within the hotels.

"We feel it is important to help the RNLI in any way we can to continue the outstanding work they do along our coastlines and for the local community."

Hunstanton RNLI chair Charles le Strange Meakin said: "The Hunstanton RNLI crew do a very important job preserving the lives of beach users on the Norfolk coast.

"It’s great for the crew’s work to be recognised and supported by such a generous and substantial donation from a local business. We are very grateful for that support."
