A LADIES bowls club from Clacton has raised £500 in support of Clacton RNLI.
Clacton Ladies Bowls Club visited Clacton lifeboat station, in Hastings Avenue, on November 25.

A spokesman said: “The volunteer crew members gave a short presentation about the formation and history of the RNLI including the developments of Clacton's own lifeboat station.
“The visit concluded with a tour of the station, with details of the equipment and the capabilities of the lifeboats.
“Crew members Darren Simper and Jim Green accepted the generous donation of £500.”
The crew thanked Mrs Schofield and her club colleagues.
