A year of quiz nights and charity raffles at an award-winning Suffolk has raised £2,000 for volunteer lifesavers at sea.
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.”

A spokesman for the RNLI said: “As the RNLI is a charity, it relies on the generosity of the public, such as those at the Sibton White Horse, to continue to save lives at sea.”
Aldeburgh RNLI is appealing for volunteers to work at its shop on Saturday afternoons. Call 01728 452552 for details.
