A lifeboat crew have been given help to keep afloat by a Great Yarmouth food store.
For the past year Caister Lifeboat has been a chosen charity of M&S Foodhall on the Gapton Hall retail estate, which has raised more than £1,000 to support the crew.
Over the year, staff at the store have clubbed together to help raise funds for the crew, holding a series of different events.
Among these, staff have done leg waxes, fancy dress days, cake bakes and sponsored bike rides, raising a grand total of £1,337.56.
A cheque was presented at the store to lifeboat station chairman and crewman Paul Garrod and his crew, who are also set to bag the proceeds from sales of 5p carriers at the store, though this total is still being calculated.
