HUNDREDS of pounds are expected to be raised this weekend during a three-day fundraiser in memory of Kristine Errington.

Her mother Pauline Levers said contributions and donations of raffle and auction prizes had spiralled with several local businesses and individuals lending their support.

The event will mark the sixth anniversary of the death of the 12-year-old who was hit by a car as she walked along Acle New Road with her sister Leanne, now 20 and the manager at Great Yarmouth's Golfers Arms pub.

The charity weekend at the pub starts tonight with an 80s disco and free finger buffet. And the pub will donate £1 to the charity pot for each person dressed in 80s fashion.

Tomorrow there is a stitch-up karaoke starting at 8pm, which works by people paying an amount to nominate someone to sing.

The pub will also be showing the FA Cup Final from 3pm on Saturday selling chip butties at £1 with all money going to Brake.

On Sunday there will be a Golden Mile pyjama run from the Golfers Arms at 11am to the Pleasure Beach. And from 4pm there is live entertainment from The Lore Breakers and Graham John Stacey, who are giving their time for free. There will also be another chance to perform karaoke on Sunday.

Mrs Levers' husband Craig will undertake a daring skydive on June 6 - marking the date of Kristine's death.

The family are determined to lift the gloom that usually surrounds the anniversary of Kristine's death with some fundraising action for Brake, the charity that campaigns for road safety.
