A Lowestoft charity, which is raising funds for the refurbishment of a former lifeboat, held a successful event.

The 50001 Youth Training Trust teamed up with Ivy House Country Hotel to host their first annual burns night supper on January 27.

The Scottish-themed event consisting of a five-course meal, live music from the Encounters, an auction and raffle proved to be a roaring success with the star attraction being piper Dawson, playing the bag pipes and performing the traditional duties to address the haggis.

The dinner, attended by 52 people, raised £1005.36 towards the refurbishment of the historic Lowestoft-built ex-RNLI lifeboat 'Rotary Service,' which is being carried out by volunteers at the former Brooke Marine boatyard for use as a Youth Training vessel to provide maritime training to 12 to 25-year-olds.

The trust is joining forces with the hotel in Oulton Broad to hold a murder mystery evening and a Halloween Ball in forthcoming months.
