Fish and chip lunch at Cromer boosts Norwich-based charity for the bereaved, Cruse

Supporters of a charity which helps bereaved people took a fund-raising trip to the north Norfolk seaside for a traditional fish and chip lunch.
Some 70 volunteers and supporters of the Norwich and Norfolk branch of Cruse topped off their meals with ice-cream and a stick of rock when they visited the No1 fish and chip restaurant in Cromer.
The event, which included a raffle, raised £530 for Cruse which is about to move from one part of Norwich to another and needs to find about £3,000 each month for rent and overheads at its new premises.
Cruse spokesman Nick Hall said the charity did not charge for its counselling services, which aimed to help bereaved people come to terms with their loss, and so fund-raising was vitally important.
They would be moving into an empty shop at 68 St Augustine's Street on November 30 where, as well as two counselling rooms and an office, a charity shop would open to help swell the coffers.

Mr Hall appealed for anyone interested in volunteering at the shop, or those who had books or bric-a-brac to donate, to ring Cruse on 01603 496334.
The Cruse party took over No1, which opened earlier this year. A partner in the business is chef Galton Blakiston who owns the Michelin-starred Morston Hall Hotel and restaurant.
