Burnham-On-Sea Adult Learning Centre organises hovercraft quiz night

Pupils from Burnham-On-Sea's Adult Learning Centre are to hold a fundraising pub quiz in aid of the charity that runs the town's two rescue hovercrafts.

The event will be held on Tuesday January 27th at The Reed's Arms on Burnham seafront starting at 7.30pm and is being organised by the group as part of their team coursework.

"The event will be open to everyone - you just turn up on the night. We hope to raise a good sum for BARB, which is an excellent local charity," said co-organiser Jane Biggs, who visited the hovercraft station this week to see one of the charity's crew training nights.

"Tickets will cost just £1 per person and groups will be a maximum size of four. There will also be a fundraising raffle, which has been well supported by businesses across Burnham."

BARB, the charity that runs Burnham's two life-saving hovercrafts and an inshore rescue boat, is funded entirely by donations and is run by unpaid volunteers.
