The Beach Radio doughnut run comes to the Lowestoft Journal.


Writing a newspaper and keeping people up-to-date with breaking news online every week is hungry work.

But thankfully this week there was a much-needed boost to help The Journaland EDP Lowestoft team get through another busy news week after The Beach Radio kindly chose the UK’s most easterly newspaper in its daily donut run.

The team filled in the radio station’s online form in the hope there might be a snack to help through another long day reporting all the goings on across Lowestoft and Southwold.

And just when they needed a sugar rush to power through this week’s mix of news and features, Beach Patrol Cat - also known Catherine Hughes, outside events team leader and station co-ordinator - arrived with plenty of donuts to go round.

Asked on air why he thought the team deserved them, Journal editor Andrew Papworth said: “Because we’re a hard-working team and the donuts will help us to get through the rest of the week.”

Reporters Simon Ward, Joe Randlesome and Mark Boggis weren’t too greedy though - visitors to the office were offered a sugary treat and a number of donuts were generously despatched to our sister title, the Beccles and Bungay Journal, via our photographer Nick Butcher.

Ms Hughes added: “I’m out and about each weekday morning delivering a sweet jammy treat to companies across the east coast. To request a ‘donut run’, simply fill in the form on the station website,”

People can hear which workplace has benefited from the delicious snacks by tuning into FM 103.4 and 97.4, or by listening online and through The Beach app.
