Norfolk Superhero 2016

Burnham Overy Staithe

Subject to any operational requirements, our inshore lifeboat will be at Burnham Overy harbour on the morning of 25 June for the 2016 Norfolk Superhero Challenge. Last year, competitors, organisers and supporters of this stunning quadrathlon event raised £57,000 for Wells RNLI towards the cost of our forthcoming new Shannon lifeboat for which we are hugely grateful.

This year, the Superheroes will be completing four consecutive events... a 1 mile tidal swim, a 4 mile kayak course around the creeks, a 45 mile cycle ride and an 8 mile coastal run... to raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Please support the event if you can or come along and cheer the competitors on.

For more information, see the event's website.

Wells Shannon
Lifeboat Appeal
target reached!

After 17 months fund-raising, we reached our target to raise £250,000 towards a new Shannon-class lifeboat for Wells and the North Norfolk coast.

We are hugely grateful to everyone who has donated, fund-raised, helped and supported us both locally and from right across the UK and even further afield. Your contribution is appreciated and will help to save lives and keep our volunteeer crews safe in the years to come.
