Lifeboat volunteers in north Norfolk are well prepared for their busiest time of the year thanks to a generous donation of life jackets.

The station at Sea Palling, near Stalham, will benefit from the four new jackets which have been given to the Palling Volunteer Rescue Service Appeal by delivery business City Link.

Mick Clarke, security support manager for the company, asked his employer to make the donation having volunteered for the village's lifeboat service for more than two years.

At a cost of �700, Mr Clarke said it would have taken a year of street collections for the team of volunteers to raise the cash.

He said: “It costs us �12,000 a year to run the service even before the lifeboat is called out to a rescue or on a training exercise.

“Thankfully we do receive a lot of support from the Sea Palling community but this donation from City Link is fantastic. Now we can put other donations to good use elsewhere in the project.”
