People can put the names of their loved ones or friends on a new lifeboat that is heading to Norfolk
Caister Lifeboat has launched the Keep the Boat Afloat fundraising campaign for the new £1.6m lifeboat for the independent volunteer station.
The all-weather lifeboat is due to arrive in August or September and to help boost funds the crew are asking people to make a minimum donation of £25 to have a name added to the vessel.
It can be the donor's name, the name of a loved one or a tribute or a thank you to someone.
The new Medina boat is being constructed in the Isle of Wight and will replace the Bernard Matthews II which has saved 54 lives.
Caister was the first independent lifeboat crew in the country and its volunteers have been saving lives since 1791.
