Anglers reel in funds for Burnham-On-Sea rescue hovercraft

Fishermen from Clevedon's Sea Angling Club have reeled in hundreds of pounds for Burnham's rescue hovercraft after a bumper few months of fundraising.

The generous anglers have held raffles and other social events in aid of BARB, the charity that runs the Spirit Of Lelaina hovercraft.

And this week the club's members handed over £328 to BARB crew members Roger Flower and Steve Perks, pictured above.

Roger thanked the club for their efforts, saying: "We're very grateful for this wonderful donation. All the money will go directly towards maintaining the hovercraft and helping train her crew."
