One month after the December tidal surge, generous donors are continuing to support the appeal fund to help its victims.

Mundesley festival has given £250 to the EDP Norfolk and Lowestoft Flood Appeal from its kitty.

General manager Derek Kirk said the August event was keen to help the fund as a lot of people who supported the festival came from affected areas such as Walcott, Wells and Hemsby.

Aylsham Salvation Army has given £3,200 to the appeal from a collection at its Christmas carol concert.

A further £125 has been donated by members of the MG Car Club who visited the area on its annual Norfolk Riviera Run, which started at the Alby Horseshoes pub passed through Mundesley and Walcott and finished at Aylsham Garden Centre.

Breckland Farmers’ Club donated the £465 proceeds of its Christmas raffle to the appeal, while the Horstead Trust gave £85 raised at its Carols for Christmas evening.

Schools were also very generous, with a carol concert at Ludham Primary School raising £105.66, and the children of Stalham Junior School donating £148.

A total of £393.23 was raised by parents at Hethersett Woodside Infant and Nursery School after watching their children in the nativity plays, and by teachers who had not yet sent Christmas cards.

The Roma Club of motor-vanners who enjoy annual rallies in Walcott donated £50. Holt Town Council gave £200.

The Parochial Church Council at St Thomas in Norwich gave £115, Litcham Methodist Church gave £80, and Clenchwarton Women’s Friendly House sent £90.
