Archant

Two young lifeboat crew members have done a skydive to raise funds for the RNLI at the third time of asking.

After two call offs through bad weather Jake Munday and Charlotte Siely did the jump from Beccles airfield on Sunday.

Their efforts have raised more than £2,000, helped by two local pubs the Hill House at Happisburgh and the Lighthouse at Walcott who allowed the pair to collect, raising over £400 from each.

Both are new crew members. Jake is an assistant quantity surveyor who has just completed his third year of a construction management degree, and Charlotte is a student, currently undertaking A-level exams and looking to go to the UEA to study Biology.

They are using the funds to help reimburse the RNLI for the money spent on their training.
