By staging small events, get-togethers and raffles, last year the Sea Fishing Group raised over £650 for the RNLI, and this year so far they have raised over £590 with further fundraising still to come.

The group has 18 dedicated live streamers so the public can see what’s happening when they're out fishing. This has proved very popular with people who previously enjoyed sea fishing but are unable to continue, and also surprisingly popular with people who find listening to the sound of the sea can help them get to sleep .

Members of the group can interact with the streamers in live time. The page is growing all the time and there's a great team of admins and moderators on hand to help or assist anglers. The group is so dedicated to fundraising for the RNLI that they have a registered charity number for the organisation and never tire of finding ways to raise funds for the volunteer crews. Coast 2 Coast is also assisted by Norfolk County Council.

The crew at Sheringham is extremely grateful to Coast 2 Coast for their RNLI fundraising and for their efforts to raise awareness of safer sea fishing.
