Beach anglers reel in £1,000 for Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft group

Over sixty anglers have reeled in a bumper £1,000 for Burnham-On-Sea's hovercraft rescue group during a beach fishing competition in the town.

The money was handed over this week following the successful competition on Burnham beach earlier this month.

A total of £1,092 has been handed over to BARB, the charity that runs the town's two life-saving rescue hovercrafts.

"The 66 anglers enjoyed good weather for the event although the catches were few and far between," said Steve Moore, one of the organisers from Weston Outcasts Sea Angling Club.

BARB spokesman Mark Newman said: "We're very grateful to the group for raising such a huge amount. This money will help towards the ongoing costs of maintaining our two craft and training our crew."
