North Walsham charity sale

A bed and breakfast owner who is set to take on a gruelling cycle challenge later this year is holding a fundraising event.

Mum-of-four Lorraine Plummer, 50, will cycle across Vietnam and Cambodia, a distance of 400km in five days, to raise money for the Genesis Research Trust, which works to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a range of illnesses including premature birth, miscarriage, cancer and genetic diseases.

Lorraine, who has run the Huntersmoon Bed and Breakfast in Field Lane, North Walsham, for the past three years, aims to raise more than �3,000 for the trust when she takes part in the ride in November.

She is holding a garage sale at the bed and breakfast on Saturday, March 26 from 9.30am – midday to raise money for the Genesis Research Trust.

On offer will be items including bric-a-brac, plants, books and also refreshments.
