Children meet Santa at Burnham-On-Sea charity's fundraising event

Over 140 children met Father Christmas during a two-day charity fundraising event in Burnham-On-Sea over the weekend.

Santa was in a specially-built grotto at the town's hovercraft station on both Saturday December 20th and Sunday December 21st, where he met families and handed out gifts to youngsters.

Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress, Peter and Jo Burridge-Clayton, were among the visitors with their four-year-old son Nathaniel (pictured above) during the weekend.

Father Christmas was towed through Burnham's town centre on the Light of Elizabeth hovercraft at the start of the event on Saturday, as pictured.

BARB, the charity that runs Burnham's two life-saving hovercrafts, also held a Christmas raffle and tombola, which raised a total of £860 towards the organisation.
