Rain fails to stop play for charity supporters in North Walsham
Heavy rain on Saturday failed to wash-out a North Walsham woman's garage sale which raised �400 for the Genesis Research Trust.
Mother-of-four Lorraine Plummer, 50, organised the event as part of her mission to raise �3,100 for the
charity, which works to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a range of illnesses including premature birth, miscarriage, cancer and genetic diseases.
She is cycling across Vietnam and Cambodia for the cause in November, covering 400km in five days. Mrs Plummer, who runs Huntersmoon Bed and Breakfast, in Field Lane, North Walsham, said she was delighted and grateful that so many people had defied the weather to support her.
She has now collected about �2,200 towards her target. Future fund-raisers include two table-top sales at Church Approach, North Walsham, on April 14 and May 12, and a medium night at North Walsham Community Centre on May 12 featuring Julia Wright and Liz Rafferty. Tickets cost �7.50 and are on sale in the centre's foyer between 11am and noon on Thursdays.
