Burnham hovercraft group to hold fundraising charity evening

Organiser Dee Emery with tickets for the eventBurnham-On-Sea's hovercraft group is to mark the end of another successful summer season with a special charity evening during November.

The BARB Charity Evening will include a look back at the Spirit Of Lelaina's second summer on service, when its crew dealt with many incidents along the Somerset coastline.

The overall tally of people rescued and helped by the service now stands at 80, and some of those who have been rescued are hoping to come along on the night.

Organised by Dee Emery - wife of hovercraft pilot Pete Emery - the event will include live music, a finger buffet, raffle and charity auction. The event is open to all and will be held at 7.30pm on Saturday November 19 in Burnham-On-Sea Holiday Village.

Live music will be provided by popular Portsmouth group The Crooners and there will also be an auction of a Retro Classic scooter, worth £699, which has been kindly donated by local company Motocoemi.

Tickets for the event cost £10 and can be purchased by calling 01278 788816. They can also be collected from the hovercraft station on Burnham seafront on Wednesday evenings between 7-9pm.

All profits from the evening will go directly towards meeting the £20,000 annual cost of maintaining the craft and training its volunteer crew.
