A Bury St Edmunds man has been awarded for his dedication to a lifeboat charity, after making around 80 talks across the region in return for donations.
Don Hill, a St Edmundsbury Cathedral tour guide, has been talking to a range of groups about the history of Norfolk’s Caister Independent Lifeboat charity. The funds from each talk went to the charity and he was presented with a painting of the lifeboat as a thank-you for his work.
Mr Hill said: “Having worked as a social worker for 25 years it was good to have a change in retirement.
“I used to work in Norfolk and you cannot be there without hearing the tale of the Caister men. It gripped me and I decided to help raise money for them in my retirement.”
