Display of Christmas lights boosts hovercraft group's funds

More than £1,900 has been donated to BARB, the charity that runs Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft, by residents of Trinity Rise following a successful month of fundraising over Christmas.

Crowds of visitors flocked to the road's impressive display of Christmas lights - which were featured on national breakfast television during December - and a collection was made for BARB and the Children's Hospice South West.

A total of £3,908 was split between the two groups. Trinity Rise spokeswoman Christine Woodberry said: "We would like to pay a huge thank you to everyone who donated to our Christmas lights display this year."

BARB's Mark Newman thanked the group, adding: "We are very grateful to the Trinity Rise residents. They had a lot of fun with their display, and gave all those who visited it over Christmas a lot of pleasure."
