Yee haw! Country and Western fundraiser raises funds for hovercraft

Burnham Hovercraft crew members visited the Flaming Jae's pub at Brean to receive a bumper cheque for £2,761.18.

The money was raised for the Burnham hovercraft during a fantastic week of fundraising by the pub and its hundreds of country and western customers, who flock to the village for their annual country and western festival.

Alan Miller, chairman of BARB, said: "This is amazing. To raise that sort of money in just five days is an incredible feat."

"We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the 'Country and Westerners', and the hard work that the orgnaisers Barbara Newman, Steve Ford and all the others have put in to raise this vital cash for us."
