Picturecraft Gallery, Holt
Paintings by Kieron Williamson and Jack Cox will be featured side-by-side at this exhibition at the Picturecraft Gallery and Exhibition Centre in Lees Yard (off Bull Street), Holt, with a collection and a prize draw being made for the Wells Shannon Lifeboat Appeal.
Great Yarmouth Racecourse
Cycle Sportives UK again supports our Shannon appeal with a 200 mile epic round-Norfolk challenge... a tough single-day event for committed riders.
The route starts at Great Yarmouth Racecourse and runs south-west to Bungay then along Norfolk's southern border through Diss and Thetford to Kings Lynn. The ride then skirts almost all of Norfolk's coastline back to Great Yarmouth.
Entry fee is £45 per rider including a 10% donation to the Shannon Appeal but as this day definitely counts as a personal challenge riders may also want to seek sponsorship from friends and family to help us fund a new Shannon class lifeboat.

The Quay, 2.30pm approx*
After a gap, there's another chance to see these remarkable rescue dogs in action at the quayside at Wells-next-the-Sea. The event is free to watch (just turn up and bag a good spot) but a collection for the RNLI will be taken during the display. The inshore lifeboat will also come down to the quayside if available.
Please note this is on the same day as our open day down at the lifeboat station so do come down beforehand or pop-in after to meet the crew, see the big boat and perhaps grab a bit to eat.
*Start time to be confirmed.
We're holding our popular Charity Golf Day at Weston Park again this year on 27 August, with funds being raised towards the new Shannon class Lifeboat for Wells. Team entries are invited and we'd also like to hear from anyone who wants to sponsor a hole or donate a raffle prize... for more information or to download a poster or entry form, see our event listing.
