Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft charity appeals for new helpers and crew

BARB, the charity that runs Burnham-On-Sea's life-saving hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat, is to hold an open day for new shorehelpers, crewmembers and fundraisers this Sunday (February 15th).

The charity is appealing for new volunteers to come forward to help with all aspects of the busy rescue organisation and full training is available.

Mark Newman, BARB's Chairman, said: "We are expecting another busy year and would like to hear from as many people from the Burnham area as possible. So whether you're 18 or 60, feel free to come along to Sunday's open day."

The event will be held at the hovercraft station, situated next to the tourist information centre on Burnham seafront, this Sunday between 10am-3pm. Visitors are also welcome at BARB's training evenings any Wednesday between 7.30pm and 9pm.
