Beers of Europe, of Setchey, spread some Christmas cheer with a gift for RNLI's Hunstanton Lifeboat Station

A Setchey firm has spread some cheer to a life-saving charity hit hard by this year's pandemic.

Beers of Europe treated the crew at the RNLI's Hunstanton Lifeboat Station by sending a selection of Christmas beers.

The Hunstanton crew is divided into two teams that each provide 48-hour emergency cover every day of the year, including Christmas and New Year's days.

The crew from both teams A and B thanked Beers of Europe for donating the selection of fine beers which they were looking forward to enjoying on their break days.

The coronavirus crisis has hit their charity hard, yet the lifeboat volunteers are busier than ever. The drop in their national income is expected to be millions, money that would usually help give lifeboat crews everything they need. In addition now, there's the extra cost of essential PPE like face masks and gloves.

Throughout the festive period RNLI lifeboat crews are on call 24/7, just as they have been throughout the pandemic. RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives since 1824.
