GoGoKingTut’s North Norfolk Holiday

GoGoKingTut has returned to his beach hut at Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast for a few days rest and relaxation.

GoGoKingTut has been part of the fabulous GoGoDragons 2015 Trail around the streets of Norwich, which thousands of people have enjoyed throughout the Summer.

While the rest of the Dragons have their make up done in preparation for the big Auction on 1st October, GoGoKingTut slipped away in the back of a pickup truck, to his holiday home in one of Dalegate Market’s beach hut pop up shops.  Stephen, one of the Dalegate Market team, never expected to have Dragon Chauffeur on his list of skills, but he can definitely add it now.

GoGoKingTut will be at Dalegate Market until the end of Tuesday 15th September, and is happily accepting visitors.  He’s already been photographed with some local children and he’ll no doubt appear in many a selfie during his stay.

GoGoKingTut is sponsored by the Friends of Iceni, a collective of Norfolk businesses: Ellie’s Cakery,JabbawockyGrain Brewery ScrapbookInspired YouthSurrey TavernSpree Book - NorwichDSS Digital MediaJon CliftonMotivated-MindsHoratio CreativeAspiration EuropeNorfolk Veg BoxNorwich Sling LibraryFosters Solicitors, Jill Watkinson and Iceni Magazine.  He was designed and painted by the hugely talented Helen Smith.

When we wave goodbye to him on 16th September, he’ll return to Break Charity, and will appear with the rest of the GoGoDragons in The Forum from 27th to 30th September, before hopefully raising huge sums for Break at the Auction on 1st October.

  • Tia's Treasures

    Tia’s Treasures began in 2011 when Tia was just 6 years old. Tia started out by creating beaded bracelets for family and friends until she soon realised that she could turn what had started out as a hobby into a fundraising enterprise calling herself  Tia’s Treasures. Tia decided she would not only create bracelets but necklaces, key rings, bag charms, mobile phone charms, earrings, rings, brooches, bookmarks and magnets.

    Tia began donating the proceeds from the sales of her “treasures” to CLIC Sargent and CHECT (Childhood Eye Cancer Trust) as these charities had supported her Best Friend Demi who had been battling Retinoblastoma since the age of 6 months, by the age of 8 Demi had unfortunately lost her sight in both eyes.

  • Cheers! Norfolk opticians roll out the barrels in centenary celebration

    It was “Cheers!” 14,500 times over when representatives of children’s charity Break dropped in at Norfolk opticians Dipple & Conway.

    Norwich’s Fat Cat Brewery brewed a special commemorative beer for a unique glasses-meets-glasses initiative to celebrate the centenary of Dipple & Conway’s independent practice.

    Long-time supporters of Break, Dipple & Conway promised to donate 10p for every pint sold in the initial three-month run of Cat’s Eyes ale, brewed just in time for last year’s Norwich Beer Festival. And the tipple proved so popular with Norfolk’s real ale drinkers that the family firm found themselves pulling a cheque for £1,450.
