Neil and Gill Mason from the Sibton White Horse paid a visit to the Aldeburgh RNLI’s lifeboat station on Friday to present the proceeds from last year’s charity fundraising.

Mr Mason said the pub’s customers had chosen the RNLI to be this year’s beneficiary with most money coming from their Monday night quizzes and raffles.

“The charity came up trumps out of our customers’ choices,” he added.

“They do an incredible job and it was great to take a look around the lifeboat station.”
