A lifesaving service has received a welcome boost to its £350,000 appeal.
Students at Flegg High School in Martham visited Hemsby Lifeboat station to learn about its work and hand over a cheque for £600.
School principal Dr Simon Fox and a group of students were hosted by coxswain Daniel Hurd and three crew members who gave them a tour and talked their work as well as about the vital equipment they used.
A spokesman said the students were 'buzzing' on their way back to school thinking of other ways of raising money and buy a tile in the new station.
Hemsby lifeboat station revealed ambitious new plans to expand the station earlier this year.

The independent service which covers the Broads as well as the busy coast wants a new boat, tractor, and trailor meaning it has to grow the station as well.
Under the plans the station will also become a hub for water safety training.
