You are never too young to raise money to help save lives off the coast. Just ask 11-year-old James Dye who has handed over £300 for the Wells Lifeboat.
Every year, he collects donations in an old yellow wellie at Silverline Marine in Brundall which is owned by his family.
As well as James’s fundraising, the company also invites visitors to donate £1 for the RNLI each time they fill their boats up with water.
Lorraine Cracknell, RNLI Wells Lifeboat Treasurer, said: “It is always wonderful to receive donations for our lifeboat station particularly when they are from children as young as James. We are very grateful to have him as one of our RNLI fund-raising volunteers and we were delighted he could join to meet some of the volunteer lifeboat crew.”
This year’s £300 donation comes after he raised £110 and £220 in previous years.
