Hunstanton’s RNLI Lifeboat Station helped a man on his 6,600-mile charity trek around the British coastline when he stopped in the town to re-stock his supplies.

Adam Short, 41, started his epic journey in Southampton on March 6 and arrived in Hunstanton last week.

He is aiming to raise £100,000 for the RNLI and Save the Children and also wants to encourage youngsters to get out and about and put their games consoles away.

Adam, from Dorset, had sent some supplies to Robin Rafferty, operational manager of Hunstanton’s RNLI station, and he met him there last Thursday.

He re-stocked his rucksack, changed his boots for some new ones, and enjoyed a cup of coffee, before setting off towards Lynn.

The father-of-one, who put his career as a self-employed web developer on hold to undertake the fundraiser, estimates his trek will finish back in Southampton in November.

With no specific training or support team to help him, Adam is relying on his previous scout training and love of extreme sports to complete his adventure, with the app, Google Map, on his smart phone to direct him.
