The collections are at Tesco in Stalham on Sunday, May 5; Fakenham on Thursday, May 9; Hunstanton on Wednesday, May 8; Aylsham on Friday, May 10; and Sheringham on Saturday, May 25.

Paul Fleet, from the Red Cross, said: “The people of north Norfolk are always so friendly and generous. The more volunteers we have, the more we can raise, so any support would be appreciated.

“The British Red Cross is very well known for being an international charity but we do many things in Norfolk.”
