Give it some wellie - Wells lifeboat helped by 11-year-old James





James Dye, aged 11 years, has been raising money for Wells lifeboat for the last three years by collecting donations in a yellow wellie which stood on the reception counter at Silverline Marine in Brundall.

Silverline Marine belongs to the Dye family and James has been collecting for RNLI Wells for the last three years in an old yellow wellie which used to belong to him as a young boy.

He travelled up to Wells lifeboat station last weekend with his mum and dad, to hand over the recent year’s donation of £300 to the RNLI Wells Treasurer, during a practise launch for the Wells all-weather lifeboat crew.

James, a keen supporter of the RNLI, raised £110 during the first year, £220 in the second year, and during the most recent year he raised a fabulous £300, all through donations from customers who visited Silverline Marine on the Norfolk Broads.
