Fishermen reel in funds for Burnham-On-Sea rescue hovercraft charity

Over sixty anglers lined Burnham-On-Sea's beach for a charity fishing match on Sunday (March 22nd), raising hundreds of pounds for a local charity.

The long-established competition, organised by Weston Outcasts Sea Angling Club, was well supported by 64 anglers.

The group was delighted to present a cheque for £875 to BARB, the charity that runs Burnham's life-saving rescue hovercrafts, from the sale of raffle tickets and entry fees.

The competition was sponsored by Bluewater Finance, with first prize being £250, £100 for second place, and £50 for third.
