Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft charity 'bowled over' by team's donation

Generous members of a Burnham-On-Sea bowling club have donated their winnings from last season to the life-saving charity that runs the town's rescue hovercrafts.

June Bridges, ladies captain at Burnham Bowling Club, handed over a cheque for £90 to BARB in a presentation at the club on Saturday afternoon (February 2nd).

The club recently won the Weston and District Ladies League, and wanted to donate its winnings to a local charity that would benefit from the money.

"It gives me great pleasure on behalf of the winning Burnham Ladies Bowling Club league team to present this cheque to BARB to help with their life-saving work," said June at Saturday's presentation.

BARB Chairman Mark Newman, who is pictured accepting the cheque from Mrs Bridges alongside the winning team, said: "We are very grateful to the team for this kind donation, which will help with the high costs of maintaining The Spirit Of Lelaina and Light Of Elizabeth hovercrafts."
