The 79-year-old, who has been Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls tournament manager for 20 years, was included in the New Year’s Honours list for his services to bowls and to local charities - for which he has helped raise more than £50,000 over the years.

Mr Webster, of Lichfield Road, Yarmouth, said: “It’s just unbelievable.”

He hailed all who have helped him.
