Weybourne family raises hundreds of pounds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance

A number of fund-raising events held for a life-saving charity this month have helped to raise hundreds of pounds.

On June 12 the Woodhouse family and their friends held a coffee morning in Weybourne Village Hall and raised around �1,200 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

Jamie Edghill, the local EAAA representative, supported the event and musical entertainment was supplied by Malcom Curtis performing on the keyboard.

There was also a variety of stalls and refreshments available together with a grand raffle.

The Woodhouse family thanked everyone who helped them with donations, prizes, time and effort.

There was also a karaoke and auction event on June 17 at The Sportsman's Club on Holway Road, in Sheringham.

The event started with a game of pool knockout at 1pm and followed with karaoke at 3pm. The auction took place after and included items such as a signed pennant from Norwich City Football Club, a tank ride at Muckleburgh Collection and gold jewellery.

A sponsored dog walk on June 3 raised over �700.

Last month the Woodhouse family welcomed over 50 villagers and friends to the village hall for a musical afternoon with cream tea event, the first of four they are planning for this summer.

A total of �304 was raised, which included �120 made on the raffle. A further �70 was donated by friends who were unable to be present.

The Woodhouse family hoped to equal if not improve on the �2,500 raised in 2011.
