LIFEBOAT HORSE - TARGET REACHED
Thr 31 Jan 2019

Back

Over the past couple of weeks we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the public in donating to the Lifeboat Horse Sculpture. We are delighted to inform everyone who contributed that the target has been reached. We would be grateful if those people who pledged money will now contact us to make payment.

A total of 130 donations were received of which 8 came from local businesses; Mr C’s, A +&M Frary, Holkham Estate, Simply Norfolk, French's Fish and Chips, Over the Garden Wall and Mine, Ks Burger Bar. We had donations from £1 to £1500 including 5 children who donated their pocket money, we are grateful to each and every one of you.

The horse can now be purchased from the artist and work will commence to make the sculpture ready to be put back into the water around May time. It will remain until the end of the season when it will be removed for maintenance and stored over winter.

This much loved sculpture is a dedication to the horses that pulled the 33ft lifeboat two and a half miles from the quay to Holkham Gap.
