An exhibition of children’s work combined with a cake sale in aid of the RNLI was held on Thursday at Heacham Infant School.

The Red and Blue classes mounted a display of work that filled the hall. Organised by teachers Nikki Hall and Catherine Tuckwood, the project that has taken a month to complete during which the 47 five- and six-year-olds have learned about the RNLI and its history.

The children visited the RNLI station and Old Hunstanton beach to collect materials for their artwork that was also on display. Surprise visitors to the exhibition, when children were dressed as characters from their favourite books for World Book Day, were the RNLI’s Robin Rafferty and lifeboat crew member Leesa Espley who arrived in full rescue kit. So far a total of £180 has been raised.
