Moose International hands over cheque to Burnham-On-Sea charity

Members of Burnham-On-Sea Moose International have this week handed over a cheque for £400 to BARB, the charity that runs the town's two rescue hovercrafts.

BARB Secretary Roger Flower was handed the cheque by Moose Brother John Cuff, Moose Lady Treasurer Doreen Ateyo, and Moose Lady President Yvonne Cornelius, as pictured here.

Roger gave a talk to the group about recent rescues and the work of BARB's volunteer crewmembers, which was illustrated with a slide presentation.

The money was raised by the Ladies' Circle organising various events, including a soup and sweet lunch, a Remembrance Day meal, and a strawberry tea.

BARB is one of several local organisations whom the Moose Lady President's appeal is supporting this year. A second cheque for £60 was also presented by John Cuff on behalf of the Lodge's Social Committee.

Moose International is a fraternal organisation based on family values that raises money for local and national charities, and provides support to each other.
