For over a decade, the branch has donated money to the lifeboat station, which is one of the eight local charities its members regularly support.

Oddfellows branch chairman Jonathan Larter said: 'The society has supported the RNLI's remarkable work since 1868 and continues to do so through regular fundraising – locally, regionally and nationally.

'The lifeboat station's heroic work in protecting and saving lives off our region's coastline needs our backing as they rely heavily on donations to keep going. What they do day-in, day-out is extraordinary, especially considering most are volunteers.'

Happisburgh lifeboat station's Cedric Cox said: 'Kind donations such as these make all the difference.'
